This is my fifth dress that I have worked on in a row and the fourth successful FO. I am suppose to be making jeans, capris, and tops for the Mini-Wardrobe contest, but I am just feeling the dress making these days! At this rate, I'll just have to enter all dresses instead of separates, since it's allowed.
I made the dress using Vogue 8382. This has had mixed reviews on PR. In fact, most reviews were not very favorable due to the low neckline and tightness. Taking this into consideration, I omitted the slit that is in the v-neck and then made a 3" FBA. I I also ended up not needing a zipper (which makes no sense with such a fitted dress in a woven material with NO stretch).
This fabric was in my stash. I believe it was in the remnants table at Yardage Town for a couple of bucks. It feels like faille to me, but I'm not 100% positive. I keep stating how pleats and darts are flattering to my body shape, but I mean - seriously, they really are.
While I have a Burda pattern for tunic already cut out to sew, I have a feeling I will work on another dress this evening. We'll see.....
