After my attempt at making the deep cowl-neck blouse, I liked it so much I decided to give it another try – this time, a dress with similar neck-line. Found this one-way stretch knit in rose-pink that is in sufficient quantity. I had already made a pattern for the blouse, so all I needed was a dress pattern in simple cut. Looked through all my pattern stash and found this Vogue pattern that will work with this neckline, so I basically just used the pattern for the back of the dress and incorporated the neckline into the front. Somehow, the front piece was longer than the back piece, so I created gathers below the bustline on the sides to match up. Liked the adjustment I made which created more drape effect on the front. Again, I just zapped the entire dress on my serger.
