Description

Very Easy Vogue V8486
I made this very quick and easy dress for a holiday that I have coming up. It should require no ironing coming straight out of my suitcase and be cool enough for warm European weather. It is made in a jersey knit and was quite easy to sew for a fabric that was slippery to cut out.

Material Notes

Polyester jersey knit.

      Thanks Irina. I am off next Sunday to Bulgaria and then France. Will be transiting at Heathrow for a couple of hours. I am sure this dress will be handy.

      Oh wow! Bulgaria will be amazing. Peru was my favourite country as a whole from the entire trip – an amazing place and really easy for tourists to get around. Definitely do think about it! Hope you have a wonderful time on holiday :)

      Thank-you for your kind comments. Yes, the plan is to wear it day or night and to be able to wash and drip drip dry it and carry less luggage.
