A spin on Very Easy Vogue 8581 view A.
Didn’t take long to knock this one off but once I had finished it I realised the sleeve back seams had allowed for too much fabric and were “bagging”. So I had to sew a new seam to skinny it dwn a bit.
Plus I am not sure the neckline has worked brilliantly. In the pattern the band is cut as a long strip and really it need to be shaped to lie as a flat U shape on the top of the bodice. I wanted a thick band but it was sticking up awkwardly as it was too wide to lie flat so I had to double it over and sew it down. The bands on the sleeves are pretty much the width I had wanted.
I think it’s a basic lightweight silk.
