Little black dress
OK it’s a boring post title, but then this really is just a little black dress. I posted about it on Sunday but as I now have some decent pictures of it on a body, rather than a dressform, here it is again. It’s Vogue 8633 with a few tweaks. I’m very happy with how it’s turned out, although I’m not quite sure what’s going on with those creases in the skirt.
I love the collar on this style. The waist inset is also nice as it gives the dress a bit of shape. I would have added interfacing to it if this dress hadn’t been made out of a stretch fabric. I’m surprised the pattern doesn’t call for it. In fact the only place you do put interfacing is the collar facing.
I think the fit’s better on this version too, although there are still a few lines on the bodice. Of course it might just be that it looks better in darker fabric! I’ve stuck the first two versions below if anyone fancies comparing lines and creases.
I think I’m probably done with Vogue 8633 for the moment. On to the rest of the project queue, and figuring out how to make my shiny new overlocker do a rolled hem.
