Vogue 8576

Devine details? Well that’s what Vogue think of this pattern. I did, too, when I first bought it. I was drawn to the triangular shapes and the cap sleeves, and those two little points at the front neckline.

This pattern has 30 pieces TIMES 2. Well, I’ll be honest. I didn’t line mine so it’s just 30 pieces. And I don’t even know if the skirt portion is lined. I wanted to dive in this project and jump right back out because I really just wasn’t ready to tackle a pattern with so many pieces.

The pattern calls for a zipper and it’s been omitted because I used a knit and since my serger is still broken and I can’t really sew my knits like I want to.

I cut the cute little points off because I didn’t line the dress, therefore I didn’t interface that part because I didn’t want it to be just hanging in the inside. I made the hem line a slight hi-lo. I really liked it too.

Honestly, I lost interest in this dress when I couldn’t get the goddets to set right in the skirt. I wasn’t going to waste my fabric and time cutting for nothing. So, this wadder will be an errand-to-the-store-dress-because-I-need-to-buy-cleaning-supplies-for-the-house.. And then I might just clean the house in it.

Here are the photos I have taken so far:

Horrific Goddet

Horrific Goddet! Ironing won’t even begin to set it better! Yuk! Just Ugh!

Sadly, I will finish the neckline, sleeve hem and call it a wrap. Maybe I’ll sleep in it. I have no plans to sew this one again. That’s what happens when you dive in and jump out. Sorry.

Until later. Sad smile

Hi Scheryka. It happens to all of us. I just put something in the wadder bin too - I haven't blogged it yet. It's called learning (or something maybe less positive, depending on your mood). I certainly empathise with you :)
