Description

I made this dress using Vogue 1209, a Rachel Comey design. I have a little obsession with peplums, and this one is great because it’s only in the back! I made it of matte jersey, which was new for me. My blog entry for this dress may be found here.

Material Notes

matte jersey from Fashion Fabric Club

    It’s fun, flattering, and fashionable – the trifecta of sewing!

    I have this pattern too but haven’t tried it yet. Can you wear a bra with it?

      I had to put an extender on the back to pull it down an inch, but other than that you can. It’s actually not as bad as I thought it would be!
