The Peacock Dress: Vogue 1336
This Sandra Betzina color-blocked dress design was exactly what I was looking for when I wanted to showcase a peacock panel from Emma One Sock.
Emma One Sock will post a bundle of coordinated color fabrics made up of small pieces. The bundles typically sell very quickly. However, a few months ago I managed to purchase one made up of blue fabrics.
Vogue 1336 (c. 2013) and was able to find two other pieces of fabric from the bundle that worked well together.
The only adjustment I made to the pattern was to lengthen the bodice piece by 1" as I wanted to make sure the seam fell below my bust. Next time I'll take the time to do a small FBA for an even better fit through the front.
I've found the Sandra Betzina patterns to always have good instructions and illustrations. This was no exception. I liked the very clear instructions for the finishing the v-neckline. I thought it produced a nice, clean finish.
