V9017

I finally have some photo shots of the completed Vogue Dress,

Summary of fitting adjustments:


  1. FBA of 1 1/2 inches, I ended up removing about 1/2 inch.
  2. FSA 5/8 inch
  3. Reduction of 2 inches from waist to hip
  4. Added those 2 inches to length.
  5. Sewed 3/8 inch deeper upper back seams for narrow back adjustment
  6. Sewed deeper side seams starting at hip area down to hem, from thigh to hem I sewed 1 inch seam to taper the dress in more.
  7. Took in 3/8 in upper chest area through the princess seams.
  8. Swayback adjustment was closer to one inch than my usual 5/8, trued seam and added to side seam.
  9. Lowered front neckline by 1/4 inch, next time may lower more, it is a high neckline more so than appears on the drawing on pattern envelope.
Here is the dress with me wearing.  The shoes I have on matches the golden brown color in the center panel.  Black shoes will be worn with this dress as well.



I lightened the photo to enable the center fabric to been seen.  In "real" light you can see the panel but with camera, not so well.
