Stretch cotton poplin purchased from Vogue Fabrics.
What was your inspiration?
The pattern itself inspired me. When I saw this eggplant colored fabric on sale on the Vogue Fabrics Website, I knew it wanted to be this dress.
What are you most proud of?
The detail on the collar and shoulders.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Definitely make a muslin. And even when making the garment from your fashion fabric, hand sew the collar and shoulder before taking it to the machine. The pattern is well drafted and goes together well.
