Month: June 2014
Although the temperature begins at a steady pace, I have found it can turn as quickly scared rabbit! You almost never know what to wear! Coming from Jersey it was much easier as the weather gradually changes with beautiful Spring flowers and Fall leaves! Taking a ride in North Jersey is simply beautiful.. While most have negative opinions about Jersey the landscape is gorgeous in transition weather times.. anyway! I digress! Today I decided to wear a silk twill maxi skirt that I self drafted with a permanently attached bow!
Description: Vogue 1027 Misses’ Dress: Calf length dress has semi-fitted, pleated
and lapped bodice, bias skirt with inseam pockets and stitched hems.
Sizing: 8 – 12 — I cut a 10 for the top and 12 for the bottom,
which were more than generous and fits well.
it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done
sewing with it? Yes, just like the photo!
the instructions easy to follow? Yes for the most part,
the belt is attached to the dress. I
should have made the belt longer to so it could wrap twice.
did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I would like to see dresses like this give an option for D cups :-9
It’s a Crystal Tie-Dye from Michael Levine Fabrics in LA 92% Polyester / 8% Spandex. This knit fabric has an ultra-soft
plush hand and has a crinkle knit texture on stretch polyester. It is perfect
for stylish tops, t-shirts, dresses, and skirts.
alterations or any design changes you made: Mad the bodice
a bit longer, I could have made it a bit shorted and I should have added a bit
of width to the top. Why? Because I need
to add a pin to it if I am wearing it work hence you see a bit of pulling in
you sew it again? Would
you recommend it to others? Yes, making the alterations I mentioned.
Great dress and I would sew this again!
