Vogue 2900, version 2015.

Hello!


I made another vogue 2900 in a beautiful wax printed cotton. I really love this pattern, and I can't stop making one in every summer. As all parts of this dress are cut in bias grain (style B), it fits great around the waist without clinging to the body too much when it is sewn in dry and stiff fabric like this wax printed cotton.

As for sewing, I don't have many things to tell about this dress, as I made it with same alterations as former V2900s. I've made two V2900s in similar fabrics before this dress, and here are the links to the posts (1) (2) if you would like to read about them. This time, I lengthened the skirt by 5cm(2") to add some fullness in the skirt, but there is nothing more.


Hope you are having a good time!

Love,
yoshimi

    1. Thank you, PaisleyPirouette. It was too difficult to match the pattern in the dress because of the bias grain and I have given up about how the pattern would appear in the dress. I'm very happy if you can tell me so!

  18. Vogue 2900 is one of my all-time favorite patterns, Yoshimi, and your versions have a lot to do with that, starting with your white linen one. I'm so glad to see that you're still inspired to make beautiful dresses from it.
