I'm going to document the process of making Vogue 1468, a color blocked dress by Nicola Finetti.
I'm participating in a FaceBook Group sewalong for this dress.
First the pattern.
Then I ordered swatches from EmmaOneSock of solids to coordinate. When they came and the fabric came I pinned the swatches all over the floral, but couldn't make a decision. So...I ordered 3 colors of her lightweight Italian rayon Ponte knits. This is how the stash gets out of hand!
They came in record time. After looking at the 3 with the yardage I still was undecided, so I cut out the Right front bodice and skirt pieces in the floral to then put up next to the solids.
In the end, purple wins
More to come...
