Vintage Vogue 1940s

I made this dress from the Vintage Vogue pattern V8812. I made it with lavender gingham check. This is the fourth dress I’ve made so far, I started sewing about three months ago and I basically haven’t stopped since. I really loved the bodice of this dress but it was a challenge because it was the first time I had done any gathering, but I think it turned out well. I also really liked this dress because of the buttons up that back instead of a zipper. I had a lot of trouble putting those button holes in because that was a first as well, but they turned out alright. Thanks for looking, hope you like it!
