Rehearsal Dinner Dress - V8742
I finished up the Mother of the Bride ensemble and Junior Bridesmaid dresses (I'll post those soon) on Saturday so I decided I still had time to make a dress for the rehearsal dinner. I've loved this pattern (Vogue 8742) since it came out and decided to give it a shot with a lightweight teal sweater knit I had in my stash. I love how it turned out, although now that I see it, I wish I had made it an inch longer. I liked it yesterday in the mirror but in this morning's photos, I think it's a wee bit short.
Pattern: Vogue 8742

"Rear" View. Literally. :-)
I used hot pink bias tape for the neckline to add a little fun.
There are more details of the construction and pattern at PR.
Note: I have no idea why the hangar says Bill Gilson! LOL. Nobody I know!
