Some more fabric out of the stash and another pattern used! Vogue 8706 is a nice knit dress and a relatively easy make. My fabric is a reasonably thick polyester lycra bought many years back from Frou Frou fabrics, which closed down a few years ago.
The pattern has a few interesting details - the armholes have piping, the shoulders are asymmetrical in addition to the gathering. The back is cut on the bias which I don't think is really necessary for a four way stretch fabric however I cut it that way as instructed.
While the pattern was out I also made a top from a fabric that is even older than the one above. Ah it is good to get it out of stash and into my wardrobe!
This version I didn't bother with piping (I just bound the armholes) and didn't cut the back on the bias (didn't notice any fit difference).
And while I was at it I used the remnants to whip up an elastic waist skirt. I had to join a piece into the back so make a feature of it. Some top stitching and split are nice I think.
And for some fun a la Carolyn, some dance moves!
