I love this dress...kind of
V1220This dress just looks like its made with a curvy woman in mind (that would be me). I absolutely love Vogue patterns. In particular, the complicated ones with carefully placed darts or seams. I knew the minute I saw it that this was the dress for me. As a matter of fact, I purchased the pattern long before I found a suitable fabric. I love that the shaping is created by carefully placed darts.
Now, for the parts I'm not so fond of. You can't sit in this. You just can't. I even added a button at the bottom and when I sit, the dress splits open revealing way too much. It is also necessary to wear the belt b/c there is a bit of gap-o-sis right around the navel. I'm not sure what I'll do with it. For now, it's hanging in my closet, keeping company with my other summer dresses.
