Vogue 1488 Pattern Review: Shirt Dress

HI DARLINGS, Today is a warm and fab day in LA and although I am headed to the office I plan to open all the windows and let the fresh air in. As you can imagine we are up to our eyeballs in magazine stuff for May but I managed to film a fabric haul video that will go up on Friday and I managed to sew a couple things too.

This pattern has been in my stash for a LONG time and I have had it on my cutting table for months so I finally decided to make it after finding this super cute fabric at THE FABRIC STORE. The pattern review is below and although this pattern is discontinued you can probably still find it in the pattern drawers of Joann or online.

STYLED IT: Jessica Simpson Heels (old) / Prada Sunnies / Kate Spade Jewelry

Pattern Description: Misses Dress

Pattern Sizing: I cut the 8

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

Were the instructions easy to follow? Yeah, this was pretty straight forward. The Way they created the pleats was interesting.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I love a good shirt dress and this one had cool details that I really liked.

Fabric Used: Poly blend

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: None

Would you sew it again? I might, in a solid.
