Fruit jersey dress (Vogue 1351) Fruit jersey dress (Vogue 1351)

I actually finished this dress almost two weeks ago and have been wearing it almost everyday since then. It is made of jersey and extremely comfortable in spite of the dressy look. It is basically a long tank top!

The pattern is Vogue 1351 by DKNY. From the pattern envelope: Lined, pullover dress has draped front neckline, closing-fitting, bias front bodice and skirt, and invisible side zipper.

The pattern calls for bias front bodice and skirt, but my jersey fabric has this delightful fruits print that goes in one direction. Since the fabric is stretchy, I didn’t cut on bias and omitted the zipper. I cut size 6 and didn’t make too many alteration except for shortening the bodice and skirt. The dress is not too fitted around the waist so it is quite comfortable.

I love that the bodice is lined so the cowl stays where it is supposed to be. I left the skirt unlined, but then I noticed that it is a bit clingy. I might add skirt lining later or maybe just wear a slip underneath. I’m declaring that this is my official summer dress this year!
