I picked up Vogue 1353 recently. I've had it in mind for a while.
Beth of SunnyGal Studio posted a helpful exposé of this pattern a year ago. Her initial review ended on a sour note, but she recently made it again so I guess she loves it after all.
And I have this. It's a silk sari. Luckily, the dress is lined because the sari is pretty sheer. It's woven with a seersucker grid which livens up the plain part in the middle.
This pattern is ideal for a border print, because the hem is completely straight.
I have it in mind to try to cut the front neck using the rounded ochre part, and the rest of the bodice in red. But I reserve the right to change my mind. I might cut the skirt double, if I have enough fabric...
