I want to make a couple more work appropriate dresses and since the first one turned out well, I thought to give the pattern, Vogue 7014, another try.
I did make a couple of changes from the first version. I lengthened the hem two inches from View A or five inches shorter from View B. And instead of using twill or bias tape on the shoulder seam, I went with fusible tape. It was a technique called for on the kAtheRine Tilton top that I really liked, added stability without the bulk.
The first version I made has more stretch to it than this version does, just a wee bit more. And I'm wondering if that is the reason that this one feels more snug than the other. Or perhaps, it could be my bad eating habits catching up to the waistline? Either way, I want to make one more that is similar to this knit. Maybe, I'll leave off the darts.
