This is the pattern name for my new summer dress. It is an 'easy' vogue pattern and I would recommend it as it truly wasn't too hard.
I combined a Liberty of London (Rose Edenham) with Robert Kaufman's Tencel/Linen blend and am pleased with the look, feel and ease to this dress. It is certainly a dress designed for comfort which is wonderful for wearing out and about all day with two kids in tow.
i added a little extra material to the side as my waist measurement didn't exactly fit into the measurements in the pattern and it turns out i didn't really need to do that but, that is fine.
I think the flap 'pockets' are a cute addition and I don't mind that they are not real pockets.
I have officially learned to go with my system for installing zippers. This is at least the second time I've followed directions and not liked the way it came out and had to do it over.
