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, Scavenger Hunt!

I feel like I have been gone forever! Mid July we went on a mini vacation/wedding of a cousin and I have been nonstop since! Making my classroom ready for a new year is consuming my time! I wish it was sewing that was taking me away! Anywho- for the wedding/vacation I wanted a new dress to wear. I decided on a “new” Vintage Vogue 8789 pattern. The fabric was a steal at $1 a yard and I was ready to go! It was my second dress matching lines in a chevron. The pattern was relatively easy. Check out all my dorky pictures and details here!
