Believe it or not, that's not what I intended this post to be about! My friend, Deanna and I, recently took a trip together to Joann's and had way too much fun! I've been scheming for awhile about this year's prom dress, and this year I'm going for a very vintage look (not like I didn't last year....(:)
I'm going to be using V2962, by Vintage Vogue. I actually bought this pattern last year, with the intention of making it for 4H Fashion Revue. I ran out of time, however, and ended up saving this pattern for later. I feel that this dress will not only be fun to sew, but be perfect for wearing to Prom AND submitting for 4H Fashion Revue 2013!
This is the first time I'm going to be working with a fancier fabric, and the first time I'm using a Vintage Vogue pattern! I'm very excited, but also a little worried; I've heard mixed thoughts on their pattern fit/sizing/instructions. So wish me luck!
I've bought 9 yards of satin fabric, in two slightly different shades of dark green, for the lining and main fabric (the color is rather similar to this).
I may start cutting fabric tonight or tomorrow, and am so excited to get started! Keep your eyes out, as I hope to be posting about the dress at different stages during the making!
Thanks for reading!
Your Thoughts? Do you have any sewing projects planned, or in the making? Have you ever used a Vintage Vogue pattern? What were your thoughts about the pattern? Do you often sew more formal dresses, or casual go-to pieces?
