Academy 3568 in cream linen

15 February 2018

Sometimes one is not enough, especially when it comes to a vampy collared dress like this, Academy 3568. I whipped it up for a frock party last year, and I needed to make another.

I needed a something slightly more casual, still the dramatic collar and silhouette, but more easy going, summery, daywear rather than Evil Queen meting out justice. I had this simple cream woven linen in my stash, with just enough for the same quarter circle skirt. I had planned to add sleeves, but opted out, as in Northland, it is just too hot and humid. I may attach them later…

With a collar like this, I mean, who wouldn’t want more?

I added a massive pocket to this, as I did the first version, I also added some heavy bais strip to the hem, this was a bit of an experiment, I think it might be a bit heavy, but still helps with the shape and structure of the hem. So, I’ll keep it for now.

For this version, I opted for my usual iron woven interfacing for a softer shape, and easy of washing, it still sits quite well, not as high, more of a flat shirt collar. Eeep, and I do love this one too.
