Remember when I picked up this knit fabric eight months ago? I know it's still shocking that this even managed to end up in my stash considering how much I claim to dislike pink but you really have to see it to realize that it is more of a raspberry colour than pink. But I digress... This fabric was an unexpected find while shopping at Mitchell Fabrics.
I've been holding onto it thinking that I would make another Marcy Tilton skirt, Vogue 9060, because I picked up the last two metres and didn't think there was enough to make a dress. I was wrong. There was 2.2 metres and with some creative pattern piece placement and black knit lining fabric for the bodice pieces, I was able to squeak out a dress! A DRESS WITH LONG SLEEVES!!!
Remember this dress? The one that I merged my two favourite patterns to create a dress. Well, that is what I did here. The bodice and sleeves are from Lynn Mizono's dress pattern, Vogue 1312, and the lower portion of the dress are from Marcy Tilton's skirt pattern, Vogue 9060.
I like this version even more than the sleeveless version. It is so comfortable. I don't know what else to say about this dress besides I can't wait to wear it.
