Vogue 8667 - Happy Easter!



Vogue 8667, View C (pink) without the sleeves:

Line Art

This bright, cheery, yellow fabric came out of my stash (again! I feel like I am making some headway sewing through the stash). It is a pique/waffle type of fabric, with a subtle white, shiny thread woven in. It is fairly "beefy", but I liked it for this pattern, and it was a pleasure to sew and is comfortable to wear. The full Bemberg lining of course feels wonderful.

As you can see in the first pic, I did cut out the sleeves, then lined them and attached them to the dress. It just didn't look right... so, off they came!




On my way to Easter Vigil Mass:


This will be a great addition to my work wardrobe this summer, and the cheery color really lifts my mood!

  3. That is the perfect Easter dress and yellow looks good on you! I have this pattern and I've been looking for the right fabric to make View A or D (I'm with you on the sleeves - I don't like 'em, but I am infatuated with the collar). The only version of this dress I've seen was a wool dress - seeing your spring/summer version has just given me a whole host of ideas!

    1. Thanks! I love that collar too! I have plans to make this again with a floral, but I don't think I have enough for the collar. That said, I really like this jewel neckline, too :-)
