The Hundred Dresses: Day 74

by Erin on August 15, 2013

This is my absolute favorite Vogue 9929:

Liberty Kalumba Vogue 9929 front

It’s a Liberty print, one that I’m pretty sure is called Kalumba. It’s twill — I have made two other skirts with it (one in a brown/turquoise, and one in a pale blue), and I have some if it in pale blue silk that someday, when I’m feeling invincible, I will cut into. (It is the most beautiful fabric in the world.)

I love these colors together:

I like to wear this with a pale lavender cardigan and a bright orange belt, and I like that I was able to position the print just so on the bodice:

The side zip is just ‘eh’:

And the back:

I wish I’d bought all of this fabric that was ever made … I still look for more from time to time.

I bow to your pattern-placement skills! Love this dress in this fabric!

What a superb job of cutting that print for placement of the print design!

The front of that bodice makes me think of Wonder Woman!

Well placed bodice indeed.

I’m really surprised Liberty hasn’t hired you already – you surely do more marketing for them than anyone else!

This is my favorite of all of the dresses so far! It’s beautiful.

Hi, first I”M IN LOVE WITH THIS DRESS pattern. Is it possible to get this pattern anywhere? I noticed vogue no longer sells it but I love the bodice on this and no one seems to sell any patterns with this great square top design. :(

I don’t know of a modern pattern that’s quite the same, but lots of people have been asking, so I will ratchet up the pattern-finding machine. :-)

I love your fabric placement. I have this design (also in the twill but in a lighter colourway) which I have yet to use because I’ve been unsure how to work it. This looks so amazing that I can see myself finding inspiration (i.e. copying) this bodice placement!
