This is one of the Very Easy Vogue’s from this summer. It’s a really cute little dress, especially sleeveless. But I thought I’d better add sleeves since we’re heading into fall and winter. Mostly this dress goes together “very easily” but the pleats around the neckline were a little tricky. It’s tough to get a floppy, drapey knit to sit nicely and cleanly in a pleat. The two middle pleats are actually a little off, which I will hopefully find the energy to fix soon!
