pattern: Vogue 8593
Fabric: John Kaldor stretch cotton jersey, bought at John Lewis (£22/m)
I first made this dress back in November and completely forgot to write a post- oops. The pattern is Vogue 8593. I originally made the long sleeved version in a black medium weight interlock (see picture below), sewn by hand after my old sewing machine gave up. Due to the slight stretch of the fabric I used tiny diagonal overlapping stitch similar to a machine stretch stitch. I have previously said that I like hand stitching, and I still do, but this took forever! and by the end of it I was missing my machine dearly.
|I didn't mean to look so glum!|
So far the black version is probably the most worn of all my me-made clothing it can be worn pretty much anywhere and it is really comfortable too. I will probably keep making this dress- definitely a wardrobe staple.
