Plum Floral Dress

Added Sep 10, 2013

Iowa City , Iowa...






Vogue Pattern V1251 by designer Rebecca Taylor.
I chose it due to the strong design lines in the shoulders; I felt it would play well with my body shape. I was intrigued by the sleeve seaming, cuff zippers and pull tabs.
The dress is a Crepe de Chine fabric, it is fully underlined with a vintage cotton plain weave fabric and fully lined with poly lining.
