This is the pattern V9100 from the Very Easy Vogue collection, the bodice is custom fit to your chest size with princess seams. I picked the fabric on Abakhan’s website, it’s a cute flower printed cotton. The lining is a leftover from a previous project, only the bodice required lining. It’s important to notice that this dress has POCKETS!
My thoughts about the project are that it was, indeed, quite easy. No steps were very difficult but it does require some basic knowledge to achieve it. It’s not a first project friendlly, it’s meant for advanced beginners. There are 22 steps to assemble this dress together.
I created a mock up for the bodice, to be able to fit it on me before cutting and assembling the real and final dress. Good thinking because the bodice was way too big, at least 2 sizes too large. I could adjust it and make the fit impeccable. The skirt is gathered so the bodice size isn’t important to fit them together. You can see on the picture the top one is unfitted, the bottom one is adjusted, it’s smaller. Once the mock up was validated, I could cut the fabric from the new pattern I created.
Now I just have to wait for spring/summer 2021 to wear it!
