Vogue 8593........for the third time!

Hey I have no problem whatsoever exploiting a GREAT pattern!!! I bought this great printed Ponte knit print from Jo-Ann's several weeks ago and knew it would be perfect for another version of Vogue 8593. I made and reviewed this dress HERE and Right Here . I love both versions trememdously. But I have to admit that there was something really special about this dress. The fabric feels awesome and is borderline heavenly. This dress is extremely comfortable and I think very flattering. I have to admit though I wouldn't wear this after a full course meal. I'd have to do some serious sucking in!!!! LOL!!!!!

For this version, I only lengthened this dress an additional 2" inches. I was nervous that the thickness of the fabric would creat too much bulk in the pleated neckline. But that wasn't the case. In addition to edgestitching I also tacked down the front facing on the shoulder seams and a inconspicously in a few pleats in the front. As far as construction goes, I inserted the sleeves in flat and then sewed from the sleeve down to the side seam. I'm really beginning to like sewing my knits that way.

So the wrap up is, after 3 times I'm still very much in love with this pattern. I think I may enter it into my TNT Pattern Hall of Fame. I recommend this dress wholeheartedly to others!!!!!

  14. I am all ABOUT re-making patterns. If you spend a significant amount of time perfecting a pattern's fit, why not make it again and again?! Especially if you love it. This is a great version of your TNT dress. You look hot in it!

  23. So you finished the dress in time for the church! I see your previous post did little good for managing your time, I would be delighted to be organized as you (sigh) The dress looks great and the boots are fantastic!

  24. Rosy, trust me I'm not that organized. I think the recent lack of organization gave me just the right kick to get my butt into gear. Now I'm really trying to step up the organization level so I can be more productive.
