Go inside Vogue Patterns headquarters to gain designer insight before you achieve the chic lines and high-end finish of a Badgley Mischka dress with couture sewing expert Lynda Maynard. First, use a ponte knit to sew the included Badgley Mischka V1399 pattern right out of the envelope for a dress with a soft rolled collar, delicate cap sleeves, beautiful princess seams, flattering peplum, full Bemberg lining, invisible zipper and more. Then, discover how to underline and interface a silk dupioni version of the dress. You'll remove the collar, lower the neckline, add a softly rounded cap sleeve, shape the peplum with horsehair braid, sculpt the princess seams with horsehair boning and finish the dress with a padded hem. Keep your wardrobe in style and your sewing skills sharp as you make designer garments using advanced dressmaking techniques.
