Most of the time when I’m shopping for fabric, I tend to gravitate more towards pink and orange colors.  On this particular day I was randomly shopping for fabric with no specific pattern in mind, and I ran across this gorgeous royal blue crushed crepe de chine.  Sewing knits are my favorite, but everyone’s closet needs variations, right?  This crepe de Chine I picked up works well for blousey, fluid moving, dresses and tops.  

I decided to go with OOP Vogue 8827.  The extended front draped collar was the reason for selecting this dress.   

Minor changes included:

-elastic sleeve at wrist

-pleat at yolk, instead of gathers

-Top stitch front self-facing instead of blind stitch

-Removed 3” from bottom he
