So here is another summer dress - Vogue 8633;
I made view B, the straight skirt, sleeveless version in the border print Japanese cotton I bought in NY from Metro Textiles. I say border print, on closer inspection of the fabric which has a signature on it, I think it is supposed to go up the other way, beige at the top, black at the bottom. Originally I wanted the striped section to be nearer the hem, but I didn't have enough fabric for that and stubbornly decided to make it anyway. As it turns out I am really happy with the finished dress and stripe placement, it's a bit more unusual.
This dress was easy to make and the darts in the bodice give it great shape. I changed the order of construction so that I sewed the side seams last - I like to do this so I can fine tune the fit, although it does make it harder to match up the horizontal seamlines. I also didn't add the lining.
This is a Vogue options pattern and there are indeed many possibilities for this dress, I'm sure I'm going to make it again.
