This month I chose to make a dress for Minerva Blogger Network. The sleeves on Vogue 9293 views C and F intrigued me. Also, I copied the styling on the pattern envelope for view D in making my dress.
The result is as expected a nice one, although I not sure if I like the length on the sleeves. I wonder if the full length would have been better or to shorten them to make them 3/4. I have the feeling they will grow on me as I wear the dress. It’s just me not being used to them for now.
Pattern: Vogue V9293 – Fitted dresses with different sleeve variations, ties at waist, back zipper, and either straight or pleated skirt. A, D; Contrast bodice and ties.
I made a combination of view D with sleeves from views C/F
Sizing: A5 (6 to 14) and E5 (14 to 22)
Fabric: for the bodice and ties 2 m of stripe seersucker ( lightweight 100% polyester) and for the skirt 1m of square cotton (medium weight 100% cotton)
Notions: 22” *(56 cm) zipper, 2 m single fold bias tape 1.3 cm wide, one hook and eye, two buttons
