I used one of my favourite Vogue Patterns – V8593, to make a smart and comfortable dress for work. This is a very fitted style for which I chose a lovely boucle fabric in chocolate brown. The dress has an interesting neckline detail which, though it appears complicated is actually very simple if marked out using a tracing wheel and two colours of paper. I have made this dress previously as sleeveless but decided to add dainty tucked sleeves which work well with the pleats at the neckline. The pattern for the sleeves was ‘borrowed’ from another pattern. I inserted an invisible zip, though the boucle fabric would probably have stretched sufficiently to omit the zipper altogether. As a bonus, this dress works well with a Linton Tweed Chanel style jacket I made previously and I usually wear it with a brown, snakeprint waist belt.
Boucle jersey – chocolate brown.
