I saw the relatively new Vogue 9102 sewing pattern at the store and was immediately drawn to the dress with all the bias stripe matching. The illustration is beautiful!
I love the simple bodice with tiny darts and a bit of stitching around the neck. and the fit-and-flare midi-length seemed perfect for this season.
I made a small change to the pattern by eliminating the godets in the side seams. I actually cut them out and sewed them in but after trying it on I decided it was too much fullness. So I unpicked the seams from the godet and sewed the side seams closed.
I love the seaming on the shoulders. There are more opportunities for stripe matching on this dress than anything I've sewn before! It took some time but it was fun.
