Made using Vogue 1087 and a very stretchy thin cotton knit. A trial of this pattern. The trickiest bit was matching up the stripes on the four back pieces when inserting the invisible zip in this fabric!

Material Notes

thin cotton jersey knit, 46cm invisible zip

    Nice use of stripes – love how they accentuate the front twist. Bravo for matching the stripes along the zipper!

    Very nice dress, especially because of the stripes, they match well with the pattern

    Lovely! You’re courageous to pick a stripe on a pattern that says it’s unsuited for stripes! I wonder if you could have done without the zipper altogether, since it’s a knit?

      thankyou! Do you have this pattern? I can easily put on this dress without using the zip so next time I’m totally leaving it out!! I don’t even know why they even have it in the pattern!
