Description

I made this dress to try out sewing with my new Babylock serger. The pattern is Vogue 1285 by Tracy Reese, one of the Vogue new spring collection. From the envelope: “Lined, mock wrap dress has collar, close-fitting bodice with bands/hook&eye, fitted skirt, overlay with mock band, belt loops, sleeve bands and invisible left side zipper. Darts are stitched on the right side of fabric. Lining forms attached slip with shoulder and lingerie straps.”

My pattern alteration as usual:
- shortened the bodice 3 cm.
- swayback alteration
- shortened the skirt and sleeves

I think wrap dress (or mock wrap dress in this case) always looks flattering for all body shapes. And since the skirt part is not really a wrap, I don’t have to worry about accidentally flashing my thighs!

    I really, really love this. The fabric matches beautifully with your skin tone and I love the little details! Gorgeous.

    such a cute dress.. and i really love the print (i’m crazy about watercolors these days, i spend hours every day creating similar effects on paper, hehe).. i should really try making a dress with this type of skirt, instead of full fluffy skirts that i usually attach to any dress
