The little black dress is a wardrobe staple. I decided a needed a little white dress for the summer. This dress will be great for church or work. The directions were clear and straightforward, very simple to sew together. I used both the serger and sewing machine to whip it up. A beginner's pattern for sure. Vogue 1091 is a great pattern for those of you who are afraid to work with Vogue. I used a white knit that I purchased from Metro Textiles on my recent trip to New York. I used my coverstitch on the sleeves and hem.
