It's another pattern from Tina Givens, the Greta dress, which I modified by eliminating the welted pocket and adding two hanging ones instead. I also raised the neckline, adding a contrast facing on the outside; lengthened the sleeves, adding a contrast trim and pleat with button. Oh, and I eliminated 20" of skirt width due to the amount of fabric I had available.

Lastly, here's my Tina Givens Becca coat overlaying everything. It's corduroy and works well in the overly air conditioned room where the painting class is held. Too bad you can't see more of it here, it's a lovely design, both front and back.

Thanks to Elaine, who photo-ed everything. I wouldn't be here weekly without her!
