First, I really want to say a sincere thank you to everyone who has left me comments on my last three garments. I know I read dozens of blogs and don’t always have time to leave a comment. So, the fact that you took time out to do so is pretty awesome.
I leave for China a week from Wednesday and wanted to take one new dress with me. I settled pretty quickly on Vogue 1086. I have two pieces of wax print left from my Ghana trip a few years ago. I wanted something I could tour in, but also I could wear to a meeting or dinner.
I’ve made a touch of progress since this photo 🙂 I now need to add the armhole binding and hem the dress and the cotton batiste lining. Which, I am pretty sure I can do in one good night after work.
If that happens, I have one more weekend of sewing. Which, I may shoot for a twill straight skirt or a khaki jacket. I know, crazy right?
It looks good so far. I like the fabric, it reminds me off the cottons that are popular in Africa. Have a great time in China!
Great dress. Love the fabric!
Nice dress, very colourful. Reminds me of the fabrics from Gambia that I still have in my stash. I should make something with those, looking at your dress I think I feel some ideas bubbling up 😉
This looks great and have a wonderful trip.
Can’t decide whether I’m most envious about your trip or your wardrobe :-).
But tell me, you were in Ghana right? Did you ever see anyone line that wax fabric? Did you think that’s because they didn’t know how?
You are on a roll! I wish I had some of that mojo right now. That dress is looking sooooo cute. I love that fabric/print.
Oh, I just LOVE that fabric! Now I’m curious – what are you lining it with? Cotton batiste? Sorry if you already said it. I looked, but I must need another cup of coffee.
Cidell – I love the colors of the fabric – vibrant and lively. Go C!
Gorgeous dress! The fabric is beautiful and the dress will look great on you.
That fabric is great!
I’m so thrilled that you were able to work another dress in. And this one is going to be fabulous!
I can’t wait to see the end results. I love that pattern. Good luck with getting it all done!
Really pretty fabric and a good match for this dress. Perfect for hot weather.
It’s beautiful — and will look smashing on!
Cool dress, especially in the delightful fabric you chose. I want it!
That’s highly cool. I also need some motivation to work on an entire wardrobe like you do.
Lovely colours and shape which will be gorgeous on you. Have a wonderful time exploring exotic china.
I have a UFO on this pattern, but you’ve got me thinking I should finish it up! I love your fabric!
Loooove this fabric, will look awesome made up!
Very nice indeed.
I’ve been wanting to make this too! Cute fabric!
The Ghanaian fabric is beautiful! I’ms so envious.
