#TBT DIY Dress

Hi Darlings, I am preparing for my trip back to Los Angeles next week so I am leaving you today with a good ol’ TBT (throw back Thursday) post. This is one of my favorite dresses. I have made this one twice and plan to make it again in red. The pattern review is below in case you missed it the first time around in December of 2013.


Steve Madden Heels (old) / H&M Necklace (old)

Pattern Description: Misses Dress V8825

Fabric Used: ITY Knit HERE (other options) HERE (Use my code MIMI10 for 10% OFF your fabric purchase)

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 are no confusing steps that I noticed.

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? YEP, I have so many dress patterns to sew 😉 but this is a winner for sure.

Would you recommend it to others? YES!
