This is one of the new Vogue Donna Karan patterns (Vogue 1280), sewn in a red bamboo jersey. Like most DKNY patterns, this one is a great puzzle to put together, but the instructions are much improved here over previous ones I’ve sewn! Nearly all the seams are trimmed, a piece of trim inserted, and then double topstitched to create texture (a coverstitch or twin needle is key!). I love the fit of this dress but it is VERY low cut so just be aware!
I added numbers to a bunch of diagrams and posted a ton of tips and tricks on my site, so please head over to FehrTrade for way way more photos and advice!
