Vogue 2900, June 2016.



Hi, if there is anyone. This is something like a photo-only post for my new vogue 2900, version 2016. I hope you're doing great. I've been doing OK-ish, in case you wonder. I haven't been spending time in front of my sewing machines as much as I used to have. I haven't bought any clothes for a longer while either, so it may be fair to say that sewing hasn't left me anywhere but it's just "no new clothes" phase of my life. I think it's kinda cute. Life needs ups and downs (^^)




Have a great weekend!

Hugs and kisses,
yoshimi

=====
pattern: V2900, style A (straight grain version) from Vogue Patterns. Lengthened by 10cm for a fuller skirt. I tried pattern matching of the pieces and it was a light nightmare.
fabric: Summer wool, plain woven, thin and smooth, dry, slightly stretch-y and lovely.

  4. I agree with the others, a really beautiful dress, very feminine. It is nice to see you back but like you I too am having a bit of a hiatus, a bit with sewing but mostly blogging, but I do love to read others. Have a really lovely Summer, ours is a bit wet and soggy at the moment!

    1. Thank you, Jenny! It is a very useful pattern that you can use for many kind of fabrics. Though it wasn't showed nicely in the pictures, the fabric I used was a rather formal summer wool and it was a great match for the pattern.

  7. Very pretty dress! I go through phases too! Just finished 2 failed projects so I'm not very motivated right now.

  22. It's a gorgeous dress and sometimes we just need to step away and take a creative break. Enjoy yours!

  23. Ah, so good to see that you are well! I bought this pattern admiring it on you but haven't sewn it yet. Maybe never, but it's there!

    I have long breaks between sewing, too. It seems that I have to find a need to sew before it starts up again. Right now it's nightgowns as I can't find ready made that satisfy my needs, too sheer, too thick, whatever. Best part is that I get to use cotton florals that look too old fashioned for day wear. Love wearing them!
