Retro Print Vogue
I did promise there would be another! After a few cooler days,
which is the norm in spring, I hatched a plan to add sleeves to Vogue 1250. I had in my mind a replacement pattern for my favourite New Look 6071 which I am really quite sick of but love all at the same time. I felt sleeves of some sort would be a little more work appropriate than sleeveless and also mean't I could go without a cardigan in my highly air conditioned office. Because the cotton lycra I chose was a more wintery print, it leant itself to longer sleeves. I bought the fabric for $3 per metre, a couple of years ago at Fabric Vision, so wasn't overly concerned if my plan was an epic fail, but it had to be done!
My verdict....I have a new favourite dress! There will be another, perhaps with cap sleeves next time!
