I made this lil’ number back in January when the weather was warmer. It is based on Vogue pattern #1207 and made in a gorgeous silk twill from Tessuti.
I love the pleats in the sleeves, and the low V back. The clash of the fabric makes me think of stained glass windows in beautiful old churches.
If you are thinking of making this pattern, do yourself a favour and make a muslin first. The sizing was all over the place for me, but luckily the dress lived happily ever after.
