Vogue 8665 – Textured Knit Dress


This dress is my second project as part of the Minerva Makers Team. I chose this beautiful textured Ponte Roma knit. I’ve been looking for the right knit to make Vogue 8665 for a while. I pictured a knit that wasn’t too thin or too heavy. This one was just right. The dress has a nice swing to it when I walk.


This was a simple project to sew. The only change I made was to omit the zipper in the back. There was no need for it with this knit. There dress slips on and off easily. The pattern recommends using woven or stable knit fabrics.


Thank you to Minerva for the fabric. I chose it based on the video provided on their website and was happy to see that it was exactly what I had expected.

If you have followed my blog for a while you know that I can’t resist a dress with a good twirl. Capturing a good twirling picture is always a challenge.


Here are some outtakes from the twirling photo shoot:

  1. The fit of your dress is wonderful, and your fabric choice is great- what a gorgeous color! This pop-over dress looks so comfortable, but very classy looking for a warm day at work. And…your twirling photos made me smile 🙂

  2. Really lovely and classic dress, Lucy! Beautiful fabric (and fabulous color), and such a nice pattern with the shoulder princess seaming. I will see about making it with some of the fullness removed for my size 12ish, 5′-ish self!

  3. Lucy, Love this dress! It has been in my stash for a while and, like you, I love a great twirl!
    I will check out the fabric you used and move this pattern up on the list to get done!
