The moment I saw the pattern I was in love with it – Vogue 8615 and I bought this fabric especially for it.
I had some difficulties with the sleeves e.g. they wouldn’t fit try as I might. In the end I ended up gathering them a little and I was happy and quite surprised by the final outcome.
I’ve worn it to work a few times and everyone loves it. It’s a very slimming dress (I have quite a tummy so need that) and everyone kept asking me if I’d lost weight. :-)
It’s fully lined which is a trick I’ve learned if you want to hide your love-handles Lol.
Suiting Fabric (based on cotton, but is a little chunkier and flowy)
