Hello all:) This new dress from Vogue is one of the few projects I started while still pregnant. I was wanting to make this pattern for a while now and finally got around to it. I'll probably wear it more in the fall as the long sleeves make it a bit too warm for the summer. One member on Patternreview.com cut her sleeves around elbow length and I quite liked how it looked. I do like the sleeves as-is though, so I'll likely just leave them be.
Overall I like this pattern. The sleeves don't seem quite as dramatic as on the envelope artwork though. My pattern was missing a neck piece. I may have thrown it out by mistake back when I cut out the pieces. I just "winged it" but I'm tempted to buy another pattern if the mood strikes me to make up another! Other reviewers said the wrist cuffs were loose, so I cut the smallest size. I also cut off a little over 3" of the hem since I'm only 5' 2".
Next up is a few more tops. I love my recent New Look top so much that I'd like to make some more. Dresses are fun but tops are certainly more practical at the moment!:)
Til next time!:)
