Summer Sewing Challenge - Express Yourself in Linen

Vogue printed linen summer dress

Wearing my Vogue printed linen summer dress with contrasting piping in neckline and midriff edges.

This easy to wear, Vogue summer dress in a printed linen, has a contrasting print piping at the neckline and on the horizontal edges of the midriff. The close fitting bodice has princess seams, a squared- off under arm and a fitted midriff.  The skirt also has princess seams and is quite full at the hemline. I took great pains in matching the fabric design both horizontally and vertically.  So much so that the leftover fabric has been made into a sleeveless top! After cutting out my dress, I used a 2 thread overlock to finish my edges.

    A job well done on fitting, very becoming. I really like the piping detail, dress would not have as much interest with out that. Good work & design choices.

    The dress is wonderful and it is perfect on you. The piping just makes it pop. I love to use piping, too. It makes such a difference.
