Winter Dress

I love yokes on tops (actually the pattern called it a flange) so had to make this dress.

This one is Vogue 8280.

Some very clever stitching involved in getting those yokes down (which I totally fudged! though thankfully its not very visible). Quite proud with the result in the end. It has these cute tucked up cap sleeves which are huge and floppy.

Material Notes

Lovely light weight wool, blue with light blue and grey shot.




Garment Type
Suiting, Wool

    i’m sure i’m repeating but those sleeves are gorgeous. i’ve had a vogue pattern sitting on the shelf for months now because i am afraid of it… but obviously the results are FAB.

    this is lovely. the sleeves look interesting. I’m about to start on a top with yoke/flange. it’s been scaring me, but i need a challenge so i’m going to dive right in.

    Well done on putting up all your recent stuff! This dress is my favourite, the cap sleeves are really unique. I have to say, all your fabric choices are amazing.
