Vogue 9253


Vogue 9253

This pattern was a big hit last summer when it was released and many bloggers have written about it.  It’s a very easy pattern and suitable for beginners but could be a spectacular evening gown if made with formal fabric.

I made a wearable muslin in case I decide to make a more formal version.  I used an Indonesian cotton batik which I purchased in Arab Street, Singapore.  I only had 3 metres and it was only 114cm wide so I had to make the skirt less full.  I also omitted the seam at the front and cut it on the fold.  I couldn’t pattern match but the design is quite random anyway.  I also used an invisible zipper which I usually do.  I did my usual petite adjustment at the waist but next time I will make the bodice slightly longer.  I did sew up the front about 3 inches as it was too low-cut for me especially as I will be wearing it in Asia.

I will be wearing this dress for resort vacations.
