Description

Vogue 8615, fitted using Gertie’s great videos. I made view B. Fitted boatneck collar which dips to a “V” back. Full circle skirt complete with POCKETS! Made with a lovely length of chartreuse tropical wool and lined with a matching pongee silk lining. I would definitely make this dress again and again!

Last picture is the dress paired with my Lady Grey jacket- great pairing of projects!

Material Notes

      No I don’t. I’m rather embarassed by the back because I couldn’t find a perfectly matching zipper :P However, it dips down in a “V” The shape is very nice. Thanks for the compliment!

      Thank you! I’m finally figuring out what colors are flattering on me and which are not. I think this is a good one!
