The Rachel Comey Wayfarer Dress

Here is my new project (while I work on my jacket on the side): V1209. Ok, this sounds like a sports car name, BUT, it was one of my top three pieces of the Winter collection that Vogue pulled out. What about this?

This dress was designed by Rachel Comey. I fell in love with the back. The V is nice for evening but I am sure that you can dress it down for day. The peplum is so cute and looks so modern and NOW! The front is great too! It is an A-line skirt which works for me. The curved cut of the waist/hips area looks really flattering. The gathering on the front creates a pretty draping where the waist cinches!

This afternoon, I explored the World Wide Web and Googled "Rachel Comey Dress", and I discovered that this one is a dress that she had in her last collection: the Wayfarer Dress. It actually retails for more then 400$! Here are a few variations...

Print option 1. So hourglass!

Print option 2: nice but I think that for that price, they could align the print on the top part...

Deja vu?

Back to the pattern. It has pieces that work really well together and the dress is fully lined. The only issue is that it only goes up to a size 18. There will therefore be a little tweaking on my side...

If you scrolled down to this point, you deserve a sneak peak of my gorgeous fabrics! I have a thin light brown wool and a camel silk lining!

I cannot wait!!!
What do you think of this project???


  1. I love this dress and i love your fabric! Have a great weekend.

  2. OOOOO I love it!!! Can't wait to hear about how it goes!

  3. Oh, I love this dress - I can't wait to see yours! I'm thinking of making it in silk jersey.
