Happy Tuesday Darlings, So as many of you know it is Fashion Week in Los Angeles and so I have a few shows I need to attend this week and things have been hectic. I really hate when things get so busy that I cant find time to sew for myself. Last night however I went into my sewing room closed the door and and did not come out until I had a finished dress, lol.
I was gifted this really lovely dark teak wool/knit blend and since I knew I didn't have a lot of time to sew I pulled out V8787 which by the looks of it was pretty straight forward and it was, nothing major.
I started and finished the dress in just under 4 hrs.
Pattern Review: Vogue 8787 View F
Pattern Description: V8787 Lined dress has fitted bodice variations, midriff, tapered or flared skirt and back zipper. F: semi-fitted skirt and back slit. Bias front bodice with fold-back facing.
Pattern Sizing: I cut the 6
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done? Yes
Were the instructions easy to follow? I read the instructions for the purpose of this review but I did not use them. I did however read them and from what I could see they were pretty easy to follow along. If you have made a simple dress before you wouldn't need them and I use my own methods of construction anyway.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I love the cowl neck and the skirt variations.
Fabric Used: Wool Knit Blend (Gifted)
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I didn't make any changes except for pegging a little more at the knee.
Would you sew it again? I might make another view, not sure.
Would you recommend it to others? Yes, great little pattern and easy to sew up.
