Description

I used Vogue 8789, a reproduction of a 1957 original pattern. One of the version was designed for stripes using the bias to form chevrons on the bodice. The fabric is a multicolour striped medium weight cotton I found in the decoration section of my fabric shop. This dress is part of my Colette Palette Challenge.

      Thanks, the matching was not so difficult as the bodice is only 4 pieces and it’s design especially for stripes. Next time, I want to try the chevon on the skirt as well.
