"Funny thing, my Fall Hit List has not been stressing me at all. Normally I obsess over lists, or goals, or challenges - that's just how I am. I guess I'm not stressing because:
- there is no real deadline. It's a Fall Hit List but I've given myself both the Fall and Winter Seasons to complete it.
- my list is not at all stringent. It's not written in stone, so change is highly probable somewhere down the line."
I purchased this fabric in early fall knowing full well that I wanted to knockoff an iconic DVF wrap dress with it. I even envisioned two of them on my Fall Hit List. So using the very popular and highly reviewed Vogue 8379 I finished one of those dresses last night. This is the second time around with this pattern, so I had no problem at all with it.
Changes made to the pattern:
. I chose view B, but opted to go with regular full length sleeves rather than a 3/4 sleeve with a cuff
. Decreased the sleeve cap ease
. Decreased skirt fullness by 6 inches
. Added 1 1/2" to the bodice length
. Added 2 inches to skirt length.
My only regret with this dress is the seam tape I used to stabilize the shoulder seam - it's a bit stiff. Maybe it'll soften up after the first wash because it's too late to change it now.
The sewing cave a hot mess ~~but I'm not in the mood for cleaning because my next project raring to go...
