DIY Pullover Dress + Pattern Review V8825

Hi Darlings!!!!

It is Christmas Eve and my hubby’s birthday! We are going to have a wonderful lunch and celebrate his birthday and then tonight we will celebrate with the family. I pulled out this lovely dress I made about two weeks ago but hadn’t had a chance to wear it. This dress has quickly become a favorite because I love the two piece barrel cuff sleeves!!!

I reviewed the pattern below for you and have added a link to the fabric I used. I paired my dress with my favorite nude shoes of the moment. A nude shoe is always great to help elongate the legs and I can never resist wearing nude shoes with a bright colored dress.

I want to wish you all a wonderful Merry Christmas and I will see you guys on the 26th. Be well, be blessed and be joyful.


DIY Dress / Steve Madden Heels HERE / H&M Necklace (old)

Pattern Description: Misses Dress

Fabric Used: Knit (feels like an ITY) HERE

Pattern Sizing: I Cut the 8 (31B, 24W, 33.5H) and had to shave it down a lot. I took out almost 3″ off the skirt portion and 2″ off the top. I also added 2.5″ in length.

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done? Yes

Were the instructions easy to follow? This is a Vogue “Easy” so yes I found it to be rather straight forward. There is no real complicated or confusing steps.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I love the wrap front, the sleeves and the tie belt which is attached to the dress.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I added length and had to shave it down some to fit.

Would you sew it again? No, I have so many dress patterns to sew 😉 but this is a winner for sure.

Would you recommend it to others? YES!
