DIY Chevron Dress Restyled + Pattern V8898


Hi Darlings!

I am traveling over the next few days so I have gotten a bit ahead of myself and prepared my posts for today and tomorrow. While packing I pulled out a few things that I haven't worn in a while (like the floral dress from Tuesday) it is always "finding" things in my closet.

This is a really easy dress to make using Vogue 8898. I wore and posted it last year HERE; The best thing about this dress is that you can wear it belted or not (both views shown below) I am off to start my day so I will chat with you guys tomorrow......xoxo

  8. What a difference a belt can make. Both styling a are fabulous. Will have to add this to my future "office wear" collection. We are literally moving to a new building as well as new professional dress code. This pattern is a keeper. Be safe. As always, thanks for inspiring us :o)

  12. Hi Mimi. I notice that you sew with many Vogue patterns. Do Vogue patters tend to have a better fit than other patterns? Also, I'm a curvy 10-14, are Vogue patterns to slim for me? Thanks
