Vogue 1460 by Badgley Mischka

Well, this dress has been on my "to-sew" list for quite a while, and I'm glad I finally got to it!  The pattern is Vogue 1460 by Badgley Mischka.  I think it came out fall 2014 but am not positive.
 I love the blousey top with the pencil skirt bottom.  This dress really calls for a thick knit fabric, like a ponte or doubleknit.  I used an RPL from JoAnn's that has tiny stripes that you really can't see unless you get super close.  It might be this fabric, but I'm not positive.  I decided on charcoal gray because I love wearing that color, and I also wanted another "funeral dress."  I play music and sing at funerals at my church from time to time, and I'm always looking for nice, comfortable, dark dresses for these occasions.
 My husband told me that the neckline looks like I put my dress on backwards.  Whatever.  I think it's chic.  :-)
 This dress is soooo comfortable!  It's basically a thick t-shirt in dress form.  I left out the zipper.  I didn't need it, but depending on the stretchiness of each fabric, you might.
 I  have finally made the perfect funeral dress.  :-)

  2. Very nice! That type of neckline would drive me nuts, but I'm glad you find it so comfortable.
