Pretty Polka Dot Dress with Vogue 1395

Beautiful Morning in Downtown Silver Spring! Thanks Brittney for the photoshoot ๐Ÿ™‚

This is Vogue 1395 and the Fabric I used is from G Street! It was the last piece on the roll! Love love love the feel of this its a rayon with no stretch.. Its a nice sunny yellow with pink polka dots..
This was constructed a bit differently where you made an additional piece for the back with gathers at the top and it ties in the front.. It really didn’t take that long to sew but be mindful of the instructions as they can be confusing..
I made mine a tab bit longer than the pattern and the models.. Cause I just like it that way lol no fit problems.. I cut a 10 on the top and a 12 on the bottom and widened the hips :-9 I did not care for the lining for the skirt so I just omitted it.. 
By the way pay no attention to the massive ball on my head.. its the summer and its hot! lol I get a blow-out later!
Cute hun ๐Ÿ˜‰

Bright and Sunny Inside with a Faux Wrap Dress Vogue 1027

URGH! Its so hard trying to get good (or decent) photography done right away. I am thinking of hiring someone but that is costly and two I have to go a great distance and BRING all my props.. No bueno! Anyhoo this is what I have today and this is why I have not blogged.  Followers and non-followers pay more attention when you are actually modeling the clothing.. Anyway here is my review of the pattern and fabric..
 Vogue 1027 Missesโ€™ Dress: Calf length dress has semi-fitted, pleated
and lapped bodice, bias skirt with inseam pockets and stitched hems.

8 โ€“ 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

Fabric Used:
Itโ€™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
the top.

you sew it again?
you recommend it to others?
Yes, making the alterations I mentioned.

Great dress and I would sew this again!
Do you like it ๐Ÿ™‚
