Vogue 1224


Pattern Description: Partially lined, pullover dress has short dolman sleeves, elasticized waistline and neckline with tie ends, stitched hems and above mid-knee length. Purchased stoppers for tie ends.
Pattern Sizing:8-14; 16-24 I made my daughter a 12.

Were the instructions easy to follow? They were good, I really like how the sleeves come together on this dress, very unique.

Likes/dislikes:  I have always liked the way this dress looks, so many great pattern reviewsof this pattern.  I just wasn't sure it would look good on me, so I made it for Erin. 

Fabric:  ITY from Fabric Mart

Changes:  added 1/2" to bodice, 3-1/2" to skirt length, eliminated lining and the ties and neckline.

Conclusion : I saw this on Erin yesterday and it looks amazing on her, but no pictures were allowed!  She received several compliments at school, so she wants another one.

  6. That's very pretty--chic. It must have made a hit with your daughter, since she requests another. Always good when you can please the kids with something you make.

  10. Great dress. I really love how much you sew for your daughters, as mine are getting older I find it very inspiring to see others sewing for their older children.
