vogue 8788

I decided to make a new summertime dress for my daughter.  While the silhouette of the Vogue 8788 is lovely, I just felt it was missing something.  So, I drafted a peter-pan collar for the dress!

 

We picked out a blue cotton lawn fabric with little white and green polka dots for the body of the dress.  For the collar, we chose a contrasting true red rayon blend.

The edges of the gown are trimmed in bias tape, so I simply made some from the fashion fabric.

 

I think she looks just darling in her new summer dress!  She says it’s quite comfortable and she loves the feminine silhouette.  I liked how quickly the dress worked up and construction was not at all difficult.  This would be a great pattern for a beginner.

 

There are a few more details over at my personal blog.
