Another Vogue 8728, this time in bright pink dotted swiss:
I posted this dress a couple of years ago — I wore it on my 40th birthday. It really is THAT PINK:
Here’s the side zip:
And the back:
I really do love dotted swiss, but I haven’t made up any other dresses in it since this one. (And I have at *least* three other pieces, and maybe five …) I’m thinking maybe that Simplicity pattern from the other day might be a good candidate …
And in The-Hundred-Dresses-the-book news, thanks very much to Jessica at Bed Knobs and Baubles for her very nice review!

fake dots? what is the world coming to. is there a difference between dobby dots and swiss dots.
looks light and comfy.
I wondered why I did not recognize it as dotted swiss!
I love the colour! I think the Simplicity pattern would look great in this – maybe the longest sleeveless style? I have a swing dress in this colour and I get compliments on it all the time 🙂
The sleeve openings go awfully low with this pattern. Does your bra ever show? Or do you pretty much always wear a cardigan over these dresses?
“As a tot, when I trotted in little dotted swisses
I was kissed by my aunts and my cousins and my sisters.

So my dear, I swore: Never ever more.
On my list I insisted that kissing must be crossed out.
Now I find I was blind, and – oh, Baby – how I lost out….
I could cry salty tears… where have I been all these years…”
Do you know the intro to “How long has this been going on”?
(I might’ve got a lot of it wrong – Mr Google isn’t helping, and it’s been a long time since I’ve heard Sarah Vaughan sing it.
That is my reference for “Dotted Swiss”. Imbued with romance…
