Description

The pattern is Vogue 8728 from Vogue Vintage Model line, a reissue of “The Greta Eberhardt Collection” pattern circa 1946. What is great about this pattern is that it can be made in both knit or woven fabric. I use knit fabric for my dress.

I wanted to make the dress in size 6 but unfortunately the smallest size stops at 8 so I had to do some improvisation. Those were not proper pattern grading technique, but I suppose it would work since the dress is made of knit fabric and not very fitted.

As you can see in the finished dress, my clumsy alterations changed the shape of the yoke which is now shaped like a V instead of a shallow U. Next time I should correct the top of lower bodice shape. But I suppose other parts of the dress looked quite okay. I love how the chevron lines creating shapes on different parts of the dress. The dress is now one of the most comfortable dress that I own!
