This dress is based on a vogue pattern, I made it with some left over woven stretch fabric I had that has a small pinstripe in it. It is meant to be made with a woven fabric but is much more comfy with some stretch for girls who have hips! Instead of using a hook and eye for the back neck closure I used a button and loop. Also it was much too short when I cut it out so I added a band around the bottom for length.
It has pleats in front and back and the sleeves are all in one.
Woven stretch fabric. Polyester and spandex.
vogue for base pattern.
