Brooklyn, New Yo...
This dress is from Vogue 1189 by Rebecca Taylor, with some alterations. I didn’t care for the sleeves so I drafted my own sleeve pattern. Originally I wanted the sleeves to be very long but it didn’t really look right so I ended up shortening them. It’s a lot more wearable. I made a separate obi belt rather than have the ties attached so I can wear it with a different belt and eliminated the pockets. I am very pleased with it. I like how the two fabrics go together and the pattern was easy to finish nicely.
