This dress was pretty simple and I really loved that it was fully lined, slim fitting, including front pleats and a cute little bow. I have to agree with gabc that the bow instructions weren't quite in the right order. I did find myself unpicking one of the pleats, just so I could go back to fit in the bow.
Once you understood how it worked it wasn't really too complicated. Oh, and I've told myself that Vogue Patterns are really short so I always add length to the skirts now. I'm glad I did for this one because it's just that nicer length to wear to work.
This first dress I did as per the pattern. I made it from fabric I bought once again from Spotlight as it's a stretch cotton. The only changes I made were adding two pleats just at either side of neck (shown below in red) as I found it sagged at the top.
This version below I made out of wool, which was new for me. I had some wool that wasn't quite enough to make a nice jacket so I figured this would be perfect for a work winter dress. I also made the back come up higher than the original pattern. I don't really like dresses that sit low on your back especially when you want to wear them to work. I included the front two pleats again on this version.
