Summer Dress with Pockets Vogue 9100

Summer Dress with Pockets Vogue 9100

Hello Darlings..

Well summer here in the District of Columbia and Maryland is coming to and end ๐Ÿ™ However, the summer type of weather does not end until the end of September sometimes into October.


So I create this dress with the fabric above using Vogue 9100. I had this fabric in my stash but it came from Fabricmart Fabrics. Its a cotton twill with a bit of stretch to it. I cut the custom fit size 14 but I could have used a 12 because of the stretch. I wind up taking out about 2 to 3″ in the back because it did not fit.

I just love that this skirt is flowy but with gathers vs pleats.. The princess seams and use of the D cup really fit nice and I had no fit issues. The back fit close to perfect with the exception of taking our a few inches.


The major plus about this dress is it has pockets! I do not know why pockets on a dress have become such an obsession lately! But I just made a shirt dress without pockets and I so regret it, I keep searching to put my hands in my pockets all day!

Anyway I love my dress its so fitting to kick it off with these cute Micheal Khors shoes that I got a few years ago.. cute gold hardware bow and kitten heel!

Do you like my dress? ๐Ÿ™‚

    Saw your comment in the sewing group ThRed and Needles so thought after reading some of your posts I am a new subscriber. Hi. Love the summer dress. Am also in MD area. Are you mainly ordering your fabric or is there somewhere you like especially?

      Hi Vicky you are! That’s great! I created a Maryland Sewing Group too I will invite you to the group. Yes I do order a lot of fabric online b/c the stores here are not too good. I go to NYC often to fabric shop as well. I am glad you are following along ๐Ÿ™‚
