So here we have on of my favorite patterns, Vogues 8184. I think I’ve now made this 6 or 7 times! It’s just so easy.
As you can see the lovely model Liss Libertine wears it well. There was no drama in construction as I’ve used the pattern before. I had planned on it being a full circle skirt but I didn’t have enough fabric.
I did change the pattern a bit to make it different, I made the straps wider, the front band has less of an angle where they meet, shortened the bodice, and added a bit more to the skirt to make it fuller.
The pink is cotton that was on sale at my local fabric store at 5.95 a meter, the white is a simple cotton lawn that was 3.95 a meter.
The photo shoot was a blast, 4 models as well as I the dressmaker and Claire the accessories maker.
On the last weekend in October I’ll be heading over to Camperdown for a huge Rockabilly, Rock n’ Roll, Rods and Pin ups weekender! Claire and I will be having a stall, hoping to sell a few of my dresses and things and Claire’s wonderful accessories! More about that later over at my blog!
