The Abstract Silk Crepe Dress
This is Vogue 8849. And I used view B.
I used this absolutely amazing abstract floral print from Mood Fabrics.
The fabric is called Springtime Floral Lightweight Silk Crepe. And these pictures just doesn’t do it justice. It was so easy to work with. Not as lightweight as a crepe de chine. But it still has a great amount of body and a lovely hand for draping.
This pattern was great to work with. Well-drafted and easy instructions. My favorite part is that this pattern is a Vogue Pattern’s “Custom Fit”. Which means, no FBAs needed! And it does what it’s supposed to do.
I made my usual alterations: lengthening by two inches. Notice that the back is extremely very drapey. This style may now be for everyone. But it’s a great wardrobe addition to anyone that wants a little drama in their lives.
