This is my second time with this Vogue pattern . I cut out a 16 as I had previously made but took it in so much it's more like a 12-14. The fabric is a cotton stretch sateen from Mood Fabrics . I loved the color & thought it would make a great summer dress. I actually finished it in July to wear to a family reunion but never wore it as it didn't fit with the events.
So I'm calling it my anniversary dress as I first wore it out to dinner for our 42 Anniversary. It was a great night & DH loved the dress. I underlined it with a bemberg rayon. It made it heavy than I would have thought , but also made it feel comfy to wear even in AZ heat.
I lowered the neckline about 2 inches . It rides up a bit when you sit down so I might need a vent in back if I make it again ! Nice to have a new summer dress.
