Vintage Vogue 1171 – part 1

I’m half way through this pattern and am just loving it. I hope to finish the whole dress by the weekend, well that’s the plan anyway.

What do you think so far? Have you sewed something with buttons down the front? I would love to hear any tips/hints you might have. This is also the first time I’ve sewn bound button holes.

If you would like to see more of the construction so far it’s HERE. Happy sewing everyone.
