Autumn sewing begins - Vogue 1191

Dresses served me so well over the summer that I want to get a few together for autumn and winter too. Since I enjoyed making my Donna Karan draped dress so much, I'm starting with this very similar long sleeved Michael Kors number - Vogue 1191.



I'm making it in a black and white print jersey and to be honest I don't know if it will be totally successful in a print but that's what I had enough of on hand and I wanted to start right away so I will cross my fingers!


If anyone else is thinking of making this I thoroughly recommend checking out Jacqui's Home Made Couture blog which has lots of fantastic tips and photographs - thank you Jacqui, especially for the hint on how to raise the neckline.

More coming soon when I have something that actually looks like a dress and not just a random pile of jersey....

Мне кажется, что лучше из однотонной ткани все таки сшить, без печатного рисунка. Удачи вам!

It will be interesting to see how the dress is finished with that pattern, the first was great

Love that pattern. It should look fine in the print - not like it's a really busy print.

I loved your DK dress so much I bought that pattern *and* this one, which is high on my list. Thanks for the tip on Jacqui's blog. I read through the instructions for this a couple times and came away thoroughly confused.

I think raising the neckline would be a priority with this pattern. The plunging neckline certainly deterred me from buying it.
