Cennetta’s Passion – Vogue 1205

This is my favorite dress of the season.  I used a knit from Joann’s Fabric for the dress and an animal swimsuit knit for Hancock’s.  I purchased the tricot lining from Vogue Fabrics in Evanston, IL.   This pattern is well drafted.  It went together with no problems. I wore this dress to the Haute Couture Club luncheon at the Chicago Yacht Club on June 4, 2011.  I’ve only seen two reviews of Patternreview.com.  Both ladies had good results from the pattern.  I love it.

    Your work is lovely. This is pretty and I recall seeing this in the spring Vogue pattern magazine. I applaud your full bust adjustment. It looks like the FBA was a challenge due to the dress design. Good work.

    Beautiful dress with a wonderful fit. I have a question in relation to using threads for stretch knit fabrics some polyester threads I have been using tend to snap or snag, have you experienced this problem with threads and is there a particular make that you recommend?

    Thanks Cheryl and JerseyQueen,

    My apologies for such a late response to your question. I haven't experienced the snap or snag of the thread while sewing knits. Typically, I use polyester thread. I hope I'm understanding what you mean. The snapping and snagging occurs when you are sewing? If yes, I've only experienced skipped stitches or tangled thread on the underside. When that happens, I rethread the machine and/or change the needle (ballpoint or sharp depending on the type of knit fabric).
