Work in progress... Vogue 8758

This is a different kind of post for me. Normally, I don't tell you what I'm working on. It's not that I don't want anyone to know or that it's some kind of secret. It's because I'm always thinking "what if I mess this up" or "what if I get bored with this and don't finish it?". So I'm taking a chance - LOL! I started making this dress about a week ago, and honestly wanted it finished last weekend, but I didn't quite make my self-imposed timeline. Anyway, I'm almost done.


My version will have 3/4 sleeves. I am determined to use some of my massive stash of fabric. So I had the black fabric (polyester gabardine), but I didn't have enough of the burgundy/black (poly wool blend) to make long sleeves, so I had to shorten them. So far, so good. I'm trying to finish this sooner than later so I can move on to other things. Maybe by the time I'm done, I can think of some place to go so I can wear it (my anniversary is coming up next month...)!


  1. This looks really cute. I know what you mean... As soon as you get it out there things may change and then what?! This is looking good though!

  2. Love your dress.. The color combinations are so pretty..Look forward to seeing it. Happy upcoming anniversary.
