This Vogue pattern has been lying in my drawer for ages and actually suggests using a satin or taffeta but I thought why not try a jersey. I think it has worked quite well. I used a black satin to line the top and as my material has a bit of stretch I didn’t need to add a zip. The idea for the black sleeves came from a similar style dress that I saw in a shop a little while back.
jersey, satin for lining the top part
