Vogue Dress Pattern 8724-My Most Favorite Summer of 2011 Dress

This summer I fell in love with Vogue dress pattern 8724.  The lines in this knit dress are very clean and very lean!  The bodice has a fairly deep crossover v-neck attached to a skirt that is softly pleated at the top.  The sleeves are cap-style.
The dress has no zipper and simply pulls over the head.
I hemmed my dress so it falls just a tad above mid-knee.  I twin-needle topstitched the skirt hem as well as the sleeve hems.
Vogue 8724 is an easy, easy pattern to sew and the end result is quite an elegant looking dress.
