Vogue 8826

When I picked up this fabric I knew straight away what I wanted to make, which is normally unusual of me. I usually fall in love with the fabric first, then decide later what to make but with the pyjama trend upon us last season I decided why not? I mean it wouldn't hurt to have a similar style in my wardrobe.here is the finished product of Vogue 8826
 
 I'm not too sure what the fabric is but I think it might be viscose? I selected a size 14, which turned out to be big. This is a very easy pattern to construct and the options of how you can play around with the design are endless and I will be making it again.



I didn't add the hooks and fasteners as instructed on the pattern, I personally think it looks nice with a lace vest underneath.



 
 Below is a picture of how you can style it if you wanted to wear it with skinny pants for the tomboy look and a killer stiletto.
 
 
Dress down option, which is my favourite on a 'fat' day.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 Will post more looks on me wearing this outfit in the future.

GOING RETRO FOR WINTER(SIMPLICITY 5968)


I've decided to go all retro this coming winter, so I used a very old simplicity pattern that I've had in my sewing patterns stash for over 3 years now. It was an impulse buy on eBay but having finished the dress and realising how beautiful it turned out I don't regret my purchase one second. The dress was very easy to make and it took no time at all. The fabric is from fabric land (Bristol) £3.99 per metre.
I wasn't too crazy about the collars after I put them on so I decided to do without them
At First, I thought it would look good without the sleeves but noooo...,it looked like a school uniform so I put them back on.
The dress will go great with my Victoria Beckham cape which  is in my next to
 sew list,  here is a picture. It is available from Vogue patterns
The whole inspiration for my Winter wardrobe came from seeing pictures of this cape and all things wool on the runway.
Not only does this dress go with my platforms it goes great with knee length boots if you really want to cover up
The dress gives such an illusion, it's great for all shapes and sizes, I absolutely love it. 

 
Thanks for visiting my blog and keep checking for new creations.
