Vogue 8825 – Misses’ Tunic Dress

Very Easy Vogue Pattern – that’s what the pattern envelope says. For the most part it was an Easy Sew until you arrived at the collar which is along Step 7. I had to send out an SOS to Sew Sister Nola of Aloha for Now and of course she had the answer, well after she laughed at me and said “did you read the instructions?”, well Yes, but it was confusing. Well she explained in terms that I understood and what do you know it worked. She loves me enough to laugh at me then she answered. Gotta love your Sew Sisters.

The bodice also looks good by itself. I plan to make it again just as a top to wear with jeans and boots for a casual Friday look.

I cut view A, being all of 4″11′ tall, longer dresses are not the best looking on me. I didn’t need to make any modifications to the length as it hit just in the right place below my knees. The sleeves were perfect and needed no modifications as well. All and all this was a great sew for me. I love the way this turned out.

Yes this is my fabric stash and I am hoping the Ready to Wear Challenge helps me to get it sewn down.

You must excuse my tired face in the photo, but it was a long day, I had homework to finish, I was hungry, and I wanted to get a picture of me in this dress for the fit before I went to bed.  Note to self Next time wait. LOL! I am sure we all have those days when we are tired and still need to get things done and this was definitely one of those days. I’ll be sure to do another photo shoot with a much happier face soon.
