Sheath dress with swing jacket

Oct 15, 2011

Note: this dress is not from this Vogue pattern, but it's similar. 

When I received an invitation to a springtime wedding, I was able to sew this dress and jacket quickly and feel perfectly dressed for the occasion.  I often sew vintage patterns, but this contemporary jacket pattern’s swing back and bow embellishment were reminiscent of the 1950s.
