I seem to have been sewing Vogue 8667 forever. I had a day off work this week and thought I’d finish it easily then. Two days and one evening of sewing later, here it is.
I really like the collar. It’s an Easy Options pattern so there are instructions for a collarless version as well as the one I made, but I think the collar is what makes it special. The other options in the pattern are cap sleeves and a straight skirt. I will probably make the straight skirt version because although I’ve got a pile of other sheath dress patterns I’ve got the bodice fit right on this one.
I love the colour the pictures came out. I didn’t touch them up at all. The red wool fabric really works against the brick wall background. And I’m relieved my new hair colour doesn’t clash with the dress!
