DIY Perfect ponte dress

When it comes to fitted warm weather dresses, my number one fabric choice will always be ponte.  Moodfabrics.com has some of the best quality ponte I have ever encountered.  It has a very generous amount of stretch but still feels very structured.  It’s easy to manipulate and insanely comfortable.  The ponte I used for this dress was this forest green stretch ponte knit that’s available in 10 beautiful colors.

The pattern used for this dress was the bodice to Vogue V8360 with the following pattern alterations:

-Added 4″ to the length of the bodice front and back.

-Gathered the middle of the bodice cups which will leave a keyhole opening at the bottom of the cup.

-Added a 9″ zipper down the back

The skirt was made using this pencil skirt pattern and attaching it to the bodice.
