I just finished this dress. The zipper was having an attitude problem. It's 22" long and was feeling all bunchy and so it went in twice. Ripping out zippers is the worst. This is very easy very vogue #7871 and really was very easy. Except for the zipper (I swear it was only about 60% me) it went together really fast and is so comfortable. really comfortable. Looking at the photo, I think that it could be a tad shorter. not sure if I will actually change that or not. And also I realize there is a unsightly cord in there and that this photo is a bit out of focus. . . with all the amazing photography on blogs now, a girl can't post a semi-crappy photo on a craft blog without getting a complex. . .must get better camera pronto. and/or use a tripod. or something.
Here's the pocket before I sewed the button on. I forgot to do that until I put it on for the photo. It took me way too long to decide which one, but I did okay in the end.
