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.

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.

Making test garments

I took with me for these two weeks at my mom’s a lot of patterns – much to much of course – to make muslins.

After the first week of doctors visits and other less interesting activities on Sunday I have made two muslins for the future dresses.

1. From the Silk Charmeuse I am planning to make the top of the dress as below draped on the dress form.

I have made the muslin only for the top part based on the Vogue V8787 pattern. Other options would be using the Vogue pattern V9771. Continue reading “Making test garments”
