What's Next - Vogue 8799

Can I just say that I'm excited?!  O-M-G!  Nine, yes nine days of sewing fun begins now!  And my first project is the dress and jacket from Vogue 8799.




Using this purple/plum linen from Mood Fabrics which I actually purchased online because I was too overwhelmed at work before vacation to head to the garment district...


(plum linen on the left)

I've wanted to use this pattern since it showed up in the spring offerings.  There were several garments online and in-stores this spring/summer season which inspired me...




I will be adding navy blue piping to the dress in various places and a navy blue lining.  The good thing about this make is that except for the plum fabric, all of the other notions are from my stash.  So the linen is in the dryer, next up the ironing board and then alterations to the pattern.  Hopefully, I will be waist deep into this project today and tomorrow with some photos of the finished garment later this week.

...as always more later!

    It's just, I was suffering from a serious dose of favourite blog drought. Thanks for the pictures, I especially like the one of you in the long print with the light cami.

  6. Oh boy!! I love that jacket pattern. It's been hovering near the top of my project pile for two months! I can't wait to see yours!

    And welcome home from your vacation. I went on a cruise one time and decided that there were too many social challenges for my finicky personality. Too many people, too many paparazzi like photographers, too much of everything! I completely understand your reflections - the whole list! And you look great in that maxi dress!!!

  10. Just wondering why you chose linen. I find I can't wear linen because of the horrible wrinkling. Maybe a lining helps? How do you deal with the wrinkles?

  11. Your choices look terrific, as usual. But, oh, please don't tell me you have started using 'make' as a noun. It's current use by many people as a noun is driving me nuts! ;) OK, maybe I was already crazy.

  12. I love this pattern. I did a muslin of the jacket(something I don't do often) and loved the way it came out. The jacket is cut and ready to be sewn. Can't wait to see yours. Welcome Back!
