Description

This dress was made using Vogue 1193, a DKNY pattern. The pattern is rated Easy but in fact there is a step in the instructions that takes a bit of thought – the pleats – and that’s why I would rate it as being a bit past Novice level. If you’re a new sewer and you want to make this, I’ve included a photo of the way the pleats look on the inside of the dress on my blog.

This is a quick dress to make, and doesn’t need the recommended zip when you make it in a knit. I made this in a size 12 and I think the fit is pretty good and the dress looks pretty smart. Highly recommended pattern if anyone’s looking to make a cosy knit dress!
