Here's a link to the 1st dress I made from Vogue 8724: http://www.blogger.com/blogger.g?blogID=2607898990438159645#editor/target=post;postID=4113511317872683591
I like the pattern so much that this week I made another dress from the same pattern.
I used a 2-way stretch, lightweight knit for my dress. I bought the fabric about 3 years ago. But this week when I looked at the horizontal stripes I did wonder what I was thinking when I bought the fabric. Much to my surprise and delight (I love that word) the dress actually looks pretty good on me, horizontal stripes and all.
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.
