#TBT DIY Striped Dress + PR V8901

Hi Darlings, here is a favorite #TBT dress I made about 2.5 years ago…I just bought some fabric to make this one again because I love it so much. The original pattern review is below.

Pattern Description: V8901 Dress has no side seams, close-fitting, lined bodice extending to side back, pleated skirt, side front seams, narrow hem, and invisible back zipper.. Fabric Used: Multi Colored Striped Rayon Blend. Pattern Sizing: I cut the 6  Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done? Yeah I guess so. Were the instructions easy to follow? For a vogue pattern they were pretty standard and clear. What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? Well I liked the bodice and variations and I could see it being made severe different ways but I had a small piece of this striped fabric and so I thought I would use it as my wearable muslin. Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: Well….I attached the top to the skirt without trying it on (I know, crazy) and once I did try it on it was too big so I ripped it out and wrapped the sides a bit more until it fit ok and even then it was still loose around the waist which is how it was intended in the design of the dress but to me it just made my waist look wide so I belted the dress. Other then the above mentioned I didn’t do much else to it.

Would you sew it again? No, I don’t think I need another one of these but I do recommend it.
