I used Vogue 1151, a Cynthia Steffe design dress. I’m not sure of the material but it’s mid-weight with a moderate stretch. She just loves this dress and wants a couple more in different fabrics. I added a couple inches to the length to make it age and office appropriate.
I didn’t think I would like the exposed zipper but now I’m a fan of the style.
They called for interfacing the cowl neck but I wish I had not used it. I think a softer drape would look better.
