The weather is getting cold!
I needed a dress but a wool dress because I'm always cold! :-)
I bought this Vogue pattern last year: V8593
and I wanted to make the dress with a fabric who keeps a little warm.
I choose the dress version with 3/4 length sleeves.
I found last week a lightweight knit wool in a grey color, they didn't have a big choice an colors, but it's geat.
I cut the top in size 10 and at the waist and hips size 12, not to close fitting at the hips :-(
I usually make FBA but with the knit fabric I didn't need it.
This dress is very confortable!
I was making some dress pictures for the blogg but I couldn't take the dress off ... so confortable! :-)
The dress has back and elbows darts and an invisible zipper.
About the pleats... hmm... it's not the same pleats as the pattern :-(
I marked the pleats at the wrong side... so that the pleats are going to the wrong direction :-)
It realized it too late, but it doesn't matter, anyway it's ok!
