A taste of spring this weekend got me excited; Saturday we were up to almost 70 degrees. I had a great weekend. I Attended my Church's Women's Season Prayer Service Saturday morning #GodIsAWonder. I got 10,000 steps teaching my noon line dance class. YAY!! I went to Church Sunday morning, and afterwards, I made a pit stop to the fabric store. Why not, since I used some of my stash, I had to replace it. Don't judge me. Then it snowed again...we got at least five inches.
Another snew day...Vogue 8944 in neutrals.
Pattern Description: Loose-fitting, lined dress has yoke front, back zipper and narrow hem. Topstitching.
Sizes: 6 - 22. I sewed a 10.
Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes, they were clear and easy to follow. It wasn't until I finished the dress, that I had an UH-OH moment when realized I had an extra pattern piece left. It was just one lonely yoke, laying beside my sewing machine. Talk about being confused. I have a tendency to not really read the instructions; I usually kinda gloss over them. But this time, after I finished the dress, I picked up the instructions and read them from the beginning to the end. There's definitely a typo on the pattern piece, it's instructed me to cut 2, but I only need one. WHEW.
What did you like or dislike about the pattern? With all the snow, I was in my spring sewing mode.
What fabric did you use? The recommended fabrics are Crepe, Ponte Knit, Linen Blends. I chose Crepe in white, beige and black.
What pattern alterations or design changes did you make? I altered the flared skirt to a straight skirt. The flared skirt didn't drape well on me. So, I cut the flare.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope? Sort of, mine is straight.
Which sewing machines did you use? I used my sewing machine for the majority of the construction.
Would you sew it again? I have no plans to sew this one again.
Would you recommend it to others? I would recommend it to others.
Conclusion: According to the calendar, spring begins this week even though you wouldn't know it by looking out the window. This is a great addition to my spring wardrobe, once spring arrives!
