Sew: Vogue 1027

There's not much to say about this dress except that I love it and I want to make it in a bazillion prints and colours!! I've made it at least five times before and will definitely make it up again. It is such a flattering style for me and ever so comfortable to wear.

The fabric was a gift from Anna's significant stash. Thank you! As soon as I laid eyes on it, I knew it had to be mine and exactly what I was going to do with it. The pattern to fabric match is a match made in heaven.

As usual, I simply turned over the armhole edges and twin stitched down. I used fusible stay tape on the neckline to avoid it stretching out. I also omitted the elastic in the waist because I simply forgot. However, I do think it is worth doing, especially with knits that are heavy. The weight of the skirt is significant in this fabric. It is also important to size down one or two sizes with this pattern.

I've worn this dress a few times already and it is a definite winner. It works evenly well with boots and tights for casual wear as well as platinum pumps and a wool cardigan for work. If you haven't made this pattern up, what are you waiting for?!
