I made this dress on Vogue 8755. It was super quick to sew up, didn’t require hardly any alterations and it a great easy summer dress. It has a short bodice, with a central pleat on the skirt bottom. It is lined in the bodice section and has a back centre zipper. I would recommend it to a beginner sewer who wants to sew up their first dress. Can be made as a tunic top too.
