Psychedelic Stripes for Vogue Dress V8724

Vogue 8724


Vogue 8724 is labeled a "very easy" pattern and it is a quite simple and straight-forward pattern.  I did change the bust darts to gathers since my fabric was a little stiff.  After a quick tissue-fit, I found the waist low on me (unusual), so I tucked out a 1/2" on the front and back.


I found this super smooth ITY cotton jersey at the American Sewing Guild National Convention last summer.  It is a tiny black and cream stripe.  Wearing it is cool and comfortable, but photographing it turns it into a psychedelic outfit!  At least you can see the pattern results from the pictures.

Hard to photo black and cream stripes!
