Sunset Stripes Dress (Vintage Vogue 8789)

Hi everyone, I’m here to share one of my recent projects, which I’m calling my Sunset Stripes dress. This is the dress I made for the Fall For Cotton Sewalong, hosted by Rochelle of Lucky Lucille and Tasha of By Gum By Golly. I pattern I used was a mish-mash of Vintage Vogue 8789 (bodice) and the Cambie dress by Sewaholic (skirt) and the fabric is a woven striped cotton by Kaffe Fassett. I based it on a gorgeous striped vintage dress from Dear Golden Vintage that I loved but which wasn’t my size (or price range!) I made a number of modifications to the original patterns- for more pictures and info and to see the inspiration dress, check out my post on my blog, Mint Green Sewing Machine!

  • I love this dress! I started following you once I saw it in the Fall For Cotton Sewalong. If you put together a pattern, I would purchase two, and then one one for every person whom complemented my dress. Honest!

  • How fabulous and sewn with such precision and expertise. I adore the fact that you have matched every single chevron and then purposely covered each button in a separate cover way – its attention to detail that makes home sewing exactly what it should be UNIQUE AND AMAZING. You are a very talented lady and the dress looks superb.
