Vogue 1027

I made another dress:
This is Vogue 1027, and it was very quick to make, cutting it out Wednesday night, and stitching it up Thursday afternoon. I made a size 12, with a 1" FBA and I lengthened the bodice 1" (to have the sash closer to my actual waist).

I'm really happy with how this turned out. There are pockets in the skirt too.

I rotated the resulting dart from the FBA into the two existing pleats. Now the armhole area lies nice and smooth. I used my coverstitch machine for the neckline, armholes, and hem. I am seriously in love with that machine!

I wore it last night to Calvin's gymnastics banquet.
