It’s supposed to be spring soon, though you could not tell from the temperature! I’m dying to get outside and plant my tomatoes and some herbs. Until then I have started sewing for spring with this Vogue 1496 and a multicolor rayon.
This rayon was a little troublesome to sew. I had to keep changing the thread tension as the number of layers of fabric changed.
So I really love this dress from the front. The back is another store. I’m not sure how I feel about the sleeves and the shoulders. The shoulder sort of rides up and I don’t love how high the sleeves start in the back.
There is an option to add an insert around the neck so it will not be as low, but I chose not to try that.
I feel like there may be a way to make this work a little better for me next time, but I am not sure what that might be. You may see another version of this dress in the future.
