Another dress done, Vintage Vogue reissue pattern 8728 from 1946. I've been wanting to make this dress ever since it came out a few months ago, and now that I have a vintage engagement ring from 1943, it was a perfect time to make it.
I used a tangerine cotton knit, which is really great for easy summer dressing, and looks good with a tan! This pattern does require some hand stitching of the collar. It has two options for a closure, a side zipper or snaps, I chose the zipper. The pattern also includes a lot of pieces for shoulder pads, but I opted out of that.
It was a breeze to put together, but it did turn out a bit big, I even cut a smaller size than my measurements and still had to take it in. If I was going to make it again I would make it 2 sizes smaller. All in all it's a great dress, I think that it is a flattering shape, and I would make it again.
