The last Vogue 1314 in my trilogy. For now at least, until I find some more fabric!! I love them. Super quick. Flattering. Knit. What more could a girl want?!
This is such a versatile pattern. I've made three dresses in three weeks using the same pattern with different types of fabric to achieve three completely different looks. This pattern is a serious contender against Vogue 1250!
This version is made with a merino knit from Rathdowne Fabrics. It was bought last winter for a Renfrew top but winter was over before I could get around to it. After the success of the floral Vogue 1314, I shopped my stash and found this. Perfect.
Again, I didn't line this dress. I wanted to as the fabric is quite thin but I didn't have enough lining in my stash and didn't want to go to the fabric store. So I opted to wear a stretch shift underneath instead.
Pattern: Vogue 1314, size 16
Fabric: Charcoal merino knit from Rathdowne Fabrics
Alterations: Sway back adjustment, omitted lining
The perfect winter dress! I wore it out last night with my Cordova jacket for dinner with my sewing blogging buddies to Hellenic Republic (yum!!). Such a wonderful night with lovely ladies.
