When I bought this fabric I pretty much knew which pattern I would use for it. I knew with such a sophisticated and feminine print it would look better in the form of a fitted dress. Well I made Vogue 1020 at the beginning of this year and absolutely loved it. The pattern is only 3 pieces and it's super easy to make!
(My first version of V1020 made in January)
I reviewed it HERE so there's no need to do so again. The only 3changes I made were to use clear elastic to stabilize the shoulder seams and rouching on the left side. And secondly, I added 1/2 to each side seam to give myself a little extra room from my bust to my hips. The first time I made this the size 12 was super snug on me.....scandalously so! So the extra room made the dress much more comfortable. I also made the sleeves a little shorter.

Anywho, this dress was part of my Sewing challenge for last month so I'm happy that I finally made it up and it turned out cute. Now to move on to the remaining items. I can't decide whether to make the corduroy pants or cardigan. Hmmmm......decisions, decisions....... Until next time, Happy Sewing!!!
