Vogue 8975

 This is one of Marcy's patterns. I really like it. I took it in a little at the waist to give it more shape. I used rayon/lycra. I love this fabric. It took a little to get used to working with it, but it is so soft. I did learn that it does't dry well in the drier. It comes out all wrinkled and it takes for ever to dry. Just hanging out to dry works well. The pattern is tricky, but now that I have it I want to make another one.
 This isn't the best picture of me, but at least you can get a idea how the dress looks. If you look on Marcy's blog you will see all kinds of suggestions of how to combine fabrics to make the dress. Mine was suppose to have some of the stripes across the back, but I had to recut some pieces for my mistakes.
