When I first picked up this pattern ( Vogue V1102), my intent was to make a cocktail dress. Possibly taffeta, definitely dark. Funny how if you hang onto something long enough your inclinations and thoughts toward it may begin to sway. This couldn’t have ended up more different than how I had planned. I often assess my current pattern and fabric stash prior to beginning a new project and I think this leads to a combination that I had not originally thought of . Depending on my state of mind and current whim, it could really go in any direction. I’m glad this one took the path it did.
