Color Blocking Vogue 8944

Color blocking is a beautiful way to highlight the style lines in a dress.  Carla used Cranberry/Charcoal Grey Reversible Knit (Sold Out) and did a lovely job selecting where to “change colors”.  Thank you Carla-I know your daughter loves this dress!

I made the sleeveless version of Vogue 8944 with Roz’s reversible knit.

I chose not to line it as called for in the pattern.   Instead, I stabilized the shoulders and the waistline with a fusible hem tape.

 I used a traditional binding application (as taught in Linda Lee Craftsy Class) for the neck and armholes.  The only “challenge” was the zipper.  I finally figured out I had to put the binding on—then put the zipper in—and then turn the binding down and finish!

 If anyone wants more details, just ask!  As usual, I fully documented it in case I remake!

    Looks gorgeous! Interesting how you did the binding and the zipper. I would typically put the zipper in up to the binding, then use a hook and eye for the binding. Your way would be easier for daily wear.
