A few months ago I bought this fabric from Mood. I wasn’t sure what I was going to make with it, but I knew I loved it. In fact I loved it so much I wasn’t sure I could cut it!! Then last week I was catching up on the PatternReview gallery and I saw what people were doing with Vogue 9109. I decided it was time to woman-up and cut this beautiful fabric.
I made view C and added 5 inches to the length to make this dress. For reference, I am 5’4″. I cut a size 10 in the bodice and then graded out to a 12 in the hips. If I make a dress version again, I may try to add darts in the back. Instead of using bias tape on the neckline and armholes, I used some grey quilting fabric (cut on the bias) that I had left over from making a quilt binding.
This pattern is super easy and fun!! I am already planning my next version. I feel like it is the perfect pattern for this fabric–the pieces are large enough to showcase the ombre-ish design on this fabric.
I tried to take some pictures outside today, but it is mighty HOT and BRIGHT today in Boonetowne. These are the best ones that I could get–they are so bright, they are blurry. I tried to adjust the brightness through photoshop, but the photos just got blurrier. You may want to wear your sunglasses while viewing the next three photos.
If you haven’t purchased Vogue 9109, stop what you are doing and go get it!! This is an awesome summer pattern!! Seriously!
