My first post with no belly..
Well, no pregnant belly haha!
I have been sewing a lot for my nursing wardrobe, and today I am sharing with you a super easy bohemian dress vogue 9253. The McCalls company is hosting a challenge for this dress, so there are a ton of different versions out there on the inter webs right now for your viewing pleasure!
I thought I’d join in on the fun since this pattern was in my queue. It is a simple sew, which is a relief since most Vogue patterns are not for the faint of heart. There are only 6 pattern pieces!
I used a bohemian navy and off white Rayon Challis from Fabric.com. I like ordering from them because they offer free returns. Not many online fabric shops have this perk, and I need the freedom to change my mind, or send something back if it isn’t what I thought it was.
My previous post was pretty lengthy, so I will keep this short and sweet.
Overall, the dress looked like the pattern envelope when I was done, but I probably won’t make it again. I’m not too fond of the plunging neckline for every day wear so I will wear this with a cami under when I do wear it out. The midi cut with the flow arms and (almost) empire waist just does not flatter my body type.. So, I will wear it, just won’t be adding another to my wardrobe!
Have you made this dress? What are your thoughts?
