OOTD: DIY VaVaVoom Dress + Pattern Review Vogue 8787

Hi Darlings! I am keeping my post short today because I have so much I need to get done that I am about to lose my mind, lol. Now, about this dress, can I just say I love it so much. The dress is classic and fabulous and by the look of the pattern envelope picture you wouldn’t guess it is the same dress but it is.

I leave you with the review and pics and Ill see you guys back here tomorrow for registration!

Pattern Description: Misses Dress Vogue 8787 Lined dress has fitted bodice variations, midriff, tapered or flared skirt and back zipper.

Pattern Sizing: I cut size 6

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

Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes, they are pretty clear.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I love the neckline and although the image on the envelope is not that flattering I knew it just needed some tapering.

Fabric Used: Ponte Roma $9.00 a yard HERE this ponte is silky soft!

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I just tapered the dress a bit and pegged it at the hem. I also lined it using my bag method instead of the way they have you do it in the pattern instructions. I lined it like a bag meaning I constructed the bodice and bodice lining and attached them to one another, then I attached the midriff section and midriff lining to the bodice and then attached the skirt to the midriff; once I did that I attached the skirt lining to the skirt at the HEM….yep the hem… I pulled the skirt up and attached the skirt lining at the waist to the midriff lining and finally I hand stitched the lining to the zipper. I could technically wear this dress inside out if I wanted too, LOL

Would you sew it again? No, one of these is enough.

Would you recommend it to others? Yes
