Vogue 8919

The fit is not the greatest and the fabric has a mind of it's own especially after a full day of wear but...I LOVE IT!  
This dress is warm, comfortable, easy to make, has not a single closure and is sure to frequent the Fall/Winter rotation this Season.
 These two medium weight sweater knits are remnants that have been in Virginia's stash since I inherited it.  I knew that I wanted to pair them up somehow and this dress, which is View A allowed me to experiment with the color pattern. 
 I would highly recommend this dress with modifications if you use a heavier knit.  It's designed to be "close-fitting through the bust".  You might consider going smaller at the top and adjusting for a sway back if you've got the curves.  I chose this fabric at all costs and have no regrets.    
 This is a great dress pattern that will serve as a great addition to the wardrobe.  I've gotten my money's worth as I have nearly completed the second of only two views, View B.   The fabric is a much lighter knit and the fit is quite different.
 Until next time...PEACE AND BLESSINGS!!!
