As if I have not babbled enough of my love of ponte knit in mod styles, I finished another vintage mod frock in my lovely black ponte knit. The pattern is Vogue 7663:
Pattern alterations were abundant. I adjusted for square shoulders as well as broad. I drafted out the back neckline dart, it was a useless dart with a knit fabric. I feel as if I cut the length of the original pattern in half. I shortened at least 8" in dress length off between the hem, hip and torso. Yea for shorties!
I needed to add width to the hips which meant adjusting the pleated skirt, it was a pain but ended beautifully. Look at all those pleats in action.
I wish I would have used a hefty interfacing on my peter pan collar as to avoid the dimples. Lesson learned. I also may add some fish eye darts to my waistline as the torso is NOT flattering my mid section.
None the less is a pretty stellar mod day dress. A few more fixes and I may wear it all the time.
