I’ve had this pattern in my stash for a while and when I found this knit I thought of the pattern right away. And although it’s a bit fancy for my everyday lifestyle, I really like it!
I made this dress using Vogue 1489 and I made it out of a really lightweight knit. At first glance of this pattern I thought it would be quite involved, but really its just a sort of wrap dress. I like the way it turned out, I feel sort of greek-goddess-y in it! The only thing is that the back waist elastic isn’t really enough to hold the dress at my waist, I think in the pattern they have you make a lining and tack the waist to it, so that would fix that issue, but since I omitted the lining I pulled the inner ties all the way around my waist to support the weight of the skirt instead. In retrospect I think this dress really does need a lining, just to hold everything in the right place. I thought this pattern was really unique and had a really interesting silhouette.
I think it would also be really pretty out of a semi sheer georgette too, and although it calls for only stretch fabrics I don’t really think its totally necessary for this pattern.
Thanks for reading! Have a great week! 🙂
