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.

Less than 1 meter fabric … no problem!

You have these moments when you see a piece of a fabric and immediately know what you want to make out of it.

That was exactly with this piece of a little stretch woven satin.  It was just enough to make this top with drape neckline. I used the Vogue pattern V9771.

This is perfect top to wear with my pencil skirts or pants.

Both – front and back, are cut on bias thus no bust darts are needed.

LBD–PR Sewing Contest …

LBD_Burda7174_detail_frontI have finished the LBD based on Burda pattern 7174 for LBD Pattern Review Sewing Contest.

I have taken some photos – well it was late and dark so I am not so pleased with them but there is no more time. The contest is finishing today so I have to hurry up. The only thing left is to update PR website.

Pattern Description:
B7174 Burda Style Dress – Dress with cup-shaped collar, overlapping front pieces and high-attached skirt with a kick pleat.

Pattern Sizing:
36 – 44 (10-18); I have made size 10.

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
The top yes; as I have changed the hem of the skirt it is not fully the same dress.

Were the instructions easy to follow?
Instruction is easy to follow. As I have lined the dress I had to follow my own way of sewing.
