Vogue 8576

From the Vogue Divine Details line, this knee-length, lined dress is fitted and has distinctive neck- and seamlines. The dress is made from many pieces forming unique triangular shapes, and putting it together is much like piecing a quilt. The sewing is time-consuming but easy. The many seams shape the garment to fit and mold it to your shape. It is highly beneficial to first make a muslin fitting garment. We recommend using interfacing along the neckline points to give them a crisp shape. This is a great design to show off meticulous construction, pressing, and topstitching skills.

(Sized Misses’ 4-18 for busts 29.5-40 in. and hips 31.5-42 in.)

Style Tip: Let the wonderful lines of this dress stand out. Pair it with a simple necklace, bracelet, and elegant shoes.
