DIY Vogue V8825 Remake

DIY Vogue V8825 Remake

It’s redemption time folks!

After this epic fail, I had to get to work on the remix!  I found this great, thick knit fabric from Joann’s.

This time around, I took my time.  I’m a visual person and sometimes I have to take time off the project to visualize what I’m about to do.  I literally took this step by step and when I started, with each step I took at least a day in between moving on.  I would wake up in the middle of the night and think about how to construct the next steps… I was a bit determined to make this dress happen and wearable.

Pattern Alterations:  I changed the width of the belt from it’s original width to match the widest part of the belt from beginning to end.

You’ll notice… no hidden holes / awkward lines…

I LOVE this sleeve!  I can see other dresses with this sleeve.

These pictures really doesn’t do this dress any justice.  It hugs the right curves, the sleeves are the perfect length, with flare… It really is a great dress – I can’t wait to wear it!!
