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).
This is my pattern layout:
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!).

So pretty- it will look great on you! And I am very jealous that you get to go to a fashion show tonight!
Thank you my dear! The fashion show was OK, a little weird and in a dark small, uninspiring Chinese restaurant. Go figure!
Love your new dress. It has a late ’60s feel to it, but is totally current! Such beautiful fabric…
Beautiful! I think you really hit the mark matching this pattern and fabric. A perfect outfit for attending a fashion show.
Thank you Margo!
