Description

This is my version of the 12/2011 V-neck dress #107. I love dresses and this one looked like a nice addition to my wardrobe. I used a sateen cotton for a bit more drape than your average cotton fabric. I did add a modest panel to the bodice and I only had enough fabric to do one layer of the sleeves.

    I love this dress too. I drafted the pattern months ago and haven’t made it yet, so thank-you for inspiring me. I hope you enjoy wearing your lovely dress on many occasions.
