just finished this one last night! it took me a little over 2 weeks... mostly because i had a LOT of distractions! but, oh well, it's done and that is good enough for me!


vogue 1086, a tracey reese design. i love these vogue designer patterns; they incorporate a lot of fun detailing that you don't normally get in a pattern.

the only thing i didn't care for about this pattern was that there are NO finished measurements on the tissue! ARGH! that is how i always figure what size to go with! so i made a wild guess and cut a straight 10... thankfully, it (mostly) fit - the waist size is perfect, although the shoulders are a little loose. idk, maybe that is because i am used to wearing super tight-fitting stuff. anyway, no alterations.

the entire pattern is sewn in french seams - even the zipper is bound - so the inside is very clean looking. love that! of course, french seams take longer than normal seams since you basically have to sew them twice, but i am a sucker for a pretty-on-the-inside dress, so i'm ok with that.

overall, the pattern was well-drafted, the instructions were clear, and i had fun putting it together. warning, though: ya might wanna wear a tank top under this. i am a bend away from a wardrobe malfunction  Wink





thanks for looking  Kiss please let me know what you think!

Really cute. I have been thinking about trying to use some store bought patters as opposed to my drafted ones to speed things up. You have made such cute things from the vogue patterns I will have to give it a try! Great job!
