Description

Princess seam dress using the V8408 pattern, which is out of print. It has an oversized collar, matching belt, topstitching and back slits.

I must say that I enjoyed making it, even with all the interfacing and decorative stiching involved. However, as i discovered later, this particular dress is not very wearable. Maybe the oversized collar is too stiff, too tight, or too big. So forget about trying to reach for something on that top shelf! This is a dress for those occassions were all you have to do is sit down, cross your legs, cross your arms on top of your legs, nod and smile politely. Need anything that involves any movement besides the basic? You better ask for help.

Anyway, I’ll try wearing it at work and post an update on my experience, because I really like how this dress looks and it would be a pitty to let it sit in a closet.

Material Notes

Greenish woolen fabric and light mauve embroidery thread.

    looks fantastic – pity it’s not so wearable. Stitching and collar are gorgeous.
