This Tracy Reese dress for Vogue Patterns is the last of our summer on-location photo shoots. Can you believe our model Karen needed to return to her regular McCall’s job of art directing?! We shot these photos in the Chase Bank plaza across the street from our office. (Managed to get in a couple of shots before a security guard gave us dirty looks, forcing us to scurry away.)
Karen loves this dress pattern and we do too. The lace and the contrasting lining are a striking combination, especially when you make it in black like the designer did. You could sew it yourself in lace and mesh, or try it all in a lightweight brocade and not worry so much about the contrast lining. This is a great dress to wear to a wedding or summer special occasion.
To help you sew it, we took photos of the inside of it and posted them to our Pinterest board “Detail Photos: Vogue Patterns.” The inside is almost as pretty as the outside:
