Vogue 8379

Finished this dress today:

I love this wrap dress, Vogue 8379.  It pretty much fit right out of the package.  I did do a few things differently from the pattern instructions, though:
Reinforced shoulder seams with clear elastic.
Eliminated facings and used fold-over elastic to finish the front opening and neck/collar.  I had never used fold-over elasitic before, but I had picked some up at the Vogue Fabrics table at this year’s Expo.  It turned out okay, I’m not sure this is the best way to finish this neckline, but it’s another step in the search for the perfect finish for knits.

Added fusible knit interfacing to cuffs.
Used a 1 inch hem (instructions call for 1 1/4").
Set the sleeves in flat.  Lots of easing was needed.  I might decrease that sleeve ease next time I make this.
And finally, I used a 1/2" seam allowance on the sleeves to accomodate my bulky upper arms.

Love, love, love this dress!
