Emboldened by my past success with the top from Vogue 1020 and inspired by Trena's gorgeous striped version, I decided to make my own.
Front, back and side. No makeup. Hair pulled back with a clip.
I am amazed I found time last month to make this dress. I have little energy left to write about it. Just look at my old review, Vogue Pattern Magic. It's the same, but longer. Can you tell I am proud of the stripe matching?
Cotton/lycra jersey from SAS Fabrics. Silk selvedge used as stay tape. A banded neckline instead of the turned under and stitched one in the pattern instructions. Double needle hems. Vilene fusible tape to reinforce the shoulder line. My first experience with Vilene and I can already tell that we will have a long and wonderful relationship.
In real life, it's blue/gray with black stripes. I bought a black Eileen Fisher linen cardigan that completes the outfit.
I like it. Bad Dad loves it. It's just interesting enough not to bore me, but it doesn't scream "look at me". I feel so comfortable in this, I'm willing to post au naturale photos of me .and. my daughter's room. OK, I did crop out some of the mess.
