Vogue dress and me
I have basically completed the dress but still tweaking. My expectation for this dress and the outcome are not quite in sync.
The dress has cutting lines for 14-16 and for 18-20 (or 22); not for 14, 16, 18 and 20. I am not sure if that is a factor or not but this dress has, on me anyway, a lot of ease! I took even deeper seams at the waistline on the side seams and took deeper seams below bust stopping at waist, then below tummy, I took deeper seams to hem line.
Once I inserted the sleeves on the dropped shoulder, it had a different look and unfortunately not one I think I like. I may try inserting a raglan/dropped shoulder pad, not very thick to see if this helps the drape of the sleeve.
The only thing left to do is hem it and sew hook and eye for back closure. I am somewhat disappointed with the dress as the drawing on the model gave me a different idea on who this dress was going to look. Photos later.
Next up is tops as I want to participate in Faye's top sew along. I have some great woven and knit fabrics for some new top patterns I am wanting to try.
