This dress has a bit of a 90′s grunge feel, with mix of plaid and purposely messy dye. It’s made of a cotton plaid flannel, dyed to make it a bit more interesting. The fabric is very soft and fluffy. The pattern is Vogue 1220, which millions of others in the sewing blogosphere have also made. It’s a nice design. I was a bit afraid that the tapered skirt would be too narrow, but I’ve been wearing it all day and have not had to shorten my stride for it. The waist on the dress is very high. The belt that I’m wearing with it is around the bottom of my rib cage.
The pattern does not call for a lining, but I added one because unlined dresses just feel unfinished to me. I did a tutorial on the dye effect in the previous post, if you are interested.
