Vogue 8679

I always get inspired by the cute dresses in my Boden catalogue.  One style in particular:


This reminded me that I had some floral interlock from Fabric.com that would make up into a  Summer dress.

Judging from the picture on the envelope, as well as the written description (the word “fitted” was used), I was worried that the dress would be way too tight, so I cut my usual size 12 and used 1/4” side seams.  I went back and sewed up 5/8” because the fit was fine.

Really cute!  Great for warmer weather, obviously.  The only thing I did differently was to change the neck binding.  I folded the binding wrong sides together and serged it to the neck edges.

The hems were just turned up and stitched.  I cut off about 3 1/2 inches at the bottom.   I made this up in about 2 hours, it’s super easy. 

And, speaking of Vogues, FINALLY, the 3.99 sale begins today at our area Joanns.  I’ve been waiting for weeks to get my mitts on the new ones, so off I go!!

  1. Looks great. I’ve just cut this out in corally orange for summer……
