Charlotte’s Vogue 1207 in Dolce Purple Strike

Here’s the dress Charlotte made for our Christmas Party last month, remember I didn’t get around to taking photos! The pattern used was Vogue 1207 and the fabric is our printed Italian 100% Silk Jacquard Dolce Purple Strike.

Lovely sleeve detail

Due to the deep V neckline at the back, wearing a bra is a problem so instead of raising the neckline Charlotte simply added a tab across the back, to cover the bra strap. The tab also helps to keep the shoulders in place, to keep them from slipping off the shoulders due to the combination of wide neckline and deep V back! Clever solution!
