FO: Summer dress V8724
It's once again time for a sewing interlude. We are finally getting winter rains in the SF bay area, but I'm ready for summer with this dress. My fabric is a very comfy mid-weight cotton knit that has a faint ribbed texture, and it drapes wonderfully. The pattern is Very Easy Vogue V8724, and it was indeed very easy to make. My only change in technique was to use facings for the armholes and neckline because I didn't think there was any chance I could make narrow hems and not have it look like a child's first sewing project. I'm looking forward to wearing this as soon as the weather warms up a bit.
