Don't you just love the neckline!
I was very lucky to find just the right purple buttons too!
Last time, I had made size C and found it was too big so this time I cut Size B but I made a Full Bust Adjustment and the fit is just right!
I added more gathers at the shoulder because when I muslined this dress ( I made it into a nightie ), I found the ruching was way too sparse. BTW, I love the French dart on this dress. It works really well.
Not a good photo but I wanted to show the pocket detail.. The Rachey Comey skirt is A-line but I made it into more of a straight skirt because it looked better like this.
The fabrics both came from Vogue Fabrics. The jacket is a cotton sateen and the dress is a ponte knit.
This is more of a spring / fall outfit than a summer one because the ponte of the dress is quite thick but I might get some wear out of the jacket paired with pants for a sportier look, like this.
There are several tops cut out and in various stages of construction right now in my sewing room. I'm very keen on this Marci Tilton top/jacket, V8982 in particular. So you'll see that for sure next time.
Until then, Happy Sewing from
