Vogue 8470 Ivory Linen Dream Dress

Toddington, Bedf...






I recycled a dress I had made last year as I didn’t like the bodice very much, but loved the cool linen feel of the fabric and here you have the new version.

I changed the bodice slightly by putting the zipper on the side rather than on the back as instructed in the pattern guide.

Hope you like it.

    White is a great color for you. I love the full skirt. Great dress! It reminds me of McCalls M6277 – at least the large butterfly sleeves.

    I like the neckline with the " modesty " strip across the cleavage. I have taken to putting zips in the sides of dresses as I don’t have anyone to help me get the last part of the zip up at the back ! It is certainly easier ! Also it makes for a nice back view.

      Yes, it’s difficult to zip dresses at the back especially if you live alone. thanks for your comment.
