I really love the reviews on the DKNY Vogue pattern V1179.
It appears most who've made it love it and now so do I!! I finally purchased the pattern and decided to use some stretch polyester knit I found at JoAnn on sale for $3.00 a yd to create my muslin and wow did it turn out nice! Great dress for $6 bucks...I couldn't have been more pleased! The instructions were super easy, and the pattern went together very quickly...it only took me a couple of ours after cutting it out to make it! There were no issues with the pattern and I didn't need to make any alterations or adjustments. Some of the other reviews mentioned the armhole sync being a little tight, but I didn't find this to be a problem for me. It was a perfect fit.
Currently, I'm working on another version of this pattern as a top in a Chocolate Brown rayon Lycra knit. I'm going to pair it with a beautiful "unique" animal stretch print (I believe it's polyester) It's going to be a skirt I'm self - drafting from multiple patterns. I found this animal print at JoAnn and already cut it out so I can only show you a piece of it. It looks like a combination of Leopard and Tiger! Isn't it different???
I hope both pieces turn out, (I have faith, just a little nervous because I love the fabrics!) and that will be my next post even if I "bomb"!! Happy Sewing!
