Vogue 7494

Here is a dress made from fabric and a pattern that had been residing in the stash for quite awhile.

Luckily, I have a husband and they come in handy for zipping up dresses (and taking pictures). However the fabric was too thick for an invisible zipper so I could hardly get out either. I went to the store and got a heavy duty zipper, so I will re-install that when I get motivated.

The fabric is a moleskin with a fringe that was already!

This is one of my favorite makes of the winter, except for the zipper problem.

Simplicity 1284

Not much to tell one this one. I had the fabric for quite awhile and didn't want to cut up the print too much. The pattern has darts in the shoulder and they kind of pouf out. I'll try pressing that area flat.
It also really comes together at the neck so it's hard to show off a necklace. Other than that it's a good pattern.
