Vogue 8825:)

   When Jesus came to the region of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples,“Who do people say the Son of Man is?” They replied, “Some say John the Baptist; others say Elijah; and still others, Jeremiah or one of the prophets." “But what about you?” He asked. “Who do you say I am?” Simon Peter answered, “You are the Messiah, the Son of the living God.” Jesus replied, “Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah, for this was not revealed to you by flesh and blood, but by My Father in heaven.

Matthew 16:13-20

   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!:)
