Hands up who loves a good plaid?
When I came across this plaid fabric in my local Spotlight, I knew immediately that it was perfect for Vintage Vogue 8811.
And the dress has my favourite design detail – a pocket!
– Everything? I love the drape of the skirt, the fit of the bodice, the fabric. Also, one of my best side zipper insertions.
– I think I need to make a further short waist tuck, as it’s probably still a fraction long in the torso. I can live with it though.
– Not using shoulder pads
– Made sure the plaid didn’t make a ‘+’ shape at my bust apex (boobs) as that would look awkward…. Hello girls!
This pattern is super easy, I’d definitely recommend it as a different way to use tartan/plaid fabric. It’s also a great everyday vintage style, perfect for work.
As always, more about it on my blog…
