I needed a wrikle-free dress for traveling, so here it is!

Tracy Reese pattern from Vogue. (V1224)

It was put together quickly, and is super comfy to wear!

    How pretty!! This pattern is on my list to try and I really love how yours came out. Did you make any alterations to the pattern? It seems a lot of people are lowering the waistline and adding some fullness to the bottom.

      I didn’t make any alterations as this was my first try on this pattern and the patten seemed basic enough. But I think I will lower the waist line by 1-2" next time. The skirt is pretty tight fitted, so you might want to add fullness if you don’t like such tight fit. instead of making the skirt fuller, I used thick strech knit for lining to make it flattering :)

    What a lovely job you did on this dress! I like how the tie is offset to the side. And blue is such a lovely color on you, too! I’m sure you’ll turn heads wherever you wear this dress!
