I wore the Vogue Dress

 I wore the Vogue dress yesterday to work.  When I put it on to wear I liked how it looked without the sash, so I left it off.  Because I made fitting adjustments to the shoulder area, I did not have some of the upper fullness I had with the first dress. 

I am really pleased that I decided to use the border print in the upper part of the dress instead of at the hemline.

Here is a back view:

I might could use darts in the back, again though this version was not as full as the other one.  Here is a side view:


I realized that the photo shots I took did not show the shoes I wore, which were white.  I received some very nice compliments.  I am now ready to move on to fall sewing.  I am drafting a top pattern from the Lutterloh system and plan to patten fit another Vogue dress this holiday weekend.  More later.

  2. Your dress turned out just lovely and looks very nice on you. It was a wise move not to wear the belt . . . it would have interfered with the pretty border print.

  6. This dress is lovely on you, and your use of the border print at the top is inspired. Bringing the interest up towards your face is so flattering. I must have a border print somewhere in my stash--you've inspired me---again!

  7. I like how you turned the border upside down, letting the flowers fall at your feet. Very nice work.
