Pattern Review - Vogue 1179

Received an email from Louise tonight including a photo of this tunic dress made up in our 100% Silk Crepe De Chine Big Beige Check using pattern Vogue 1179.

Louise says she adjusted the pattern to add wide 3/4 sleeves with a loose cuff, she wanted a casual dress that could be worn over jeans or on it's own. Interestingly the envelope suggests a jersey with moderate stretch for this pattern, but it seems to work just as well in a woven too!

Thanks for the inspiration Louise :)


  1. I've seen a few versions of this dress - this one seals the deal: I need to make it! The plaid print is just stunning.

  2. Yes, Vogue 1179 rocks. I'm doing a giveaway of it this month so if you know anyone that wants one send 'em my way.
