I had to change my key item to a different cardigan, because the other one didn't really go with the Vogue dress.  New key item:
Here are the pieces.  #1 Vogue 1316:

I was originally going to do Collette's Sorbetto, but saw this and thought I would make both because I just had to make this top immediately.  Because of all the issues with this one, I'm going to rest for the rest of the day instead of doing the Sorbetto.  You can find my review for this pattern here.

  1. LOVE your Vogue 1316...one of my top three from their Fall collection, but haven't bought the pattern yet because I'm not sure I want to deal with color blocking combined with a FBA.

    1. Thanks!! :) I didn't do an FBA (mostly because I don't know how to) but I am very chesty and the dress still fits. If I can do it, you can do it!
