Geometric Print Silk Blouson Dress

So easy to just slip on with some cute shoes and jewelry.

I finished this dress just in time to wear to a local fashion show tonight. I love how easy and chic it is, and was a snap to make.

I used Vogue 8915 pattern to make this dress. This is the third time I have made this pattern, and most likely not the last time.

I used this lovely silk charmeuse in a geometric print that I had in my fabric stash from about 4 years ago, purchased at Josephine’s Dry Goods in Portland, OR. I love this print because it is different and artsy without being too crazy. I originally bought it for another Vogue pattern, but decided to not make that one as it is a little dated.

It was a fast and easy pattern to cut out, just a front and back cut on the fold, the sash, and the pockets (I did not do pockets this time).

I, of course, have pinned some inspiration dresses on Pinterest for dresses like this:

I am excited to slip in this dress and wear it out, hopefully get some good photos of me in it, and maybe a client or two out of it (a sewing client, mind you!).

Cheers!
