Classic Dress – Perfect Wardrobe Bulider

The time has arrived when I needed to add few new pieces to my wardrobe.

Few years ago I have made the dress – wearable muslin – based on the Vogue Pattern V8787.  I have made a version with asymmetrical neckline with left-side gather.

I had a beautiful marine blue crepe wool in my stash – perfect for this dress. I cut out the pattern pieces about a year ago (wow! time flies) and somehow did not feel like sewing.

The dress has silk organza as interlining and Venezia lining.

I am so glad I have finished it eventually! I enjoy every time I wear this dress.

This classic dress is a great wardrobe builder. Perfect to wear together with a French jacket or just a cardigan or on her own. RPT sleek glass jewellery match perfect with it.

I am sure I will use this Vogue Pattern V8787 many times.

Just another dress

I cannot believe it is already 4 years when I have made the dress based on the Vogue Pattern V8787.
It is one of the pattern with some endless combinations.

It was made as a (wearable) muslin and it suits me well so far.

Year ago I have bought the beautiful marine blue crepe wool and I decided to make a dress based on this pattern from it.

Starting up simply with Marfy

Suddenly I have found myself browsing through the latest Marfy catalog 2014/2015 and after few minutes I have marked quite a number of pages with ideas for future projects.

Did I tell you already I love Marfy? No? – YES, I LOVE MARFY PATTERNS!

I have started with a top 3408 and a dress – 0303. Both patterns are included in the Marfy catalog as well as available in PDF format from Marfy website.

Becki has made a top based on this dress patterns and as I like the idea I am going to do the same.

So far only paper patterns are ready so let’s take the next step – muslins.

I think then I will follow on this jacket – 3350. I will order the pattern – I really like the construction.
