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.
Dress up outerwear with deep shawl collars and sew up a lovely fitted dress with a flounced hemline.
