80's Knit Dress

Project Description

What was your source for this sewing project? Online Photo or Website Name of website or photo Vogue 8679 Link to website or photo http://voguepatterns.mccall.com/v8679-products-11359.php?page_id=174 What are you most proud of? I was still figuring out my serger when I decided to make this dress so there is some unfortunate 'bumping' around the hip area, but this is easily disguised by a jacket or a busy belt. There are also some fit issues around the arms, but after wearing it a few times, I've decided I rather like the loose fit in the shoulder area from the back. I'm tempted to try this pattern again in a top once I've fixed some of the fit issues on the pattern. What advice would you give someone starting this project? This is a great beginner project that can be made very quickly.

What you will need

  • Knit blend fabric

Q&A with Kir

I've been wanting to make myself some simple knit dresses, to replace the ones I've worn to pieces. I think I've found what I was looking for, thank you! You did a really nice job, and it looks great on you :)
Kir answered:
Thanks! I hope this pattern works out for you as well!
