FIRST GARMENT FOR 2019 - Vogue #7762


At the beginning of the year I said I was going to blog more... well, it's now mid February and I'm just now posting my first garment of 2019.  Life happened and I've been extremely busy with teaching my sewing classes which I will blog about that as well.  Okay, so much for me being late with my first post of the year.

I made this beautiful dress using Vogue Pattern 7762 (which is out of print) for a dear friend who's also a client. She contacted me to make her a bridesmaid dress. The bride told the bridesmaids she wanted them to wear black, the dresses didn't have to be the same.  I made this dress for my friend/client before in red in a shorter version.  The beauty of this dress are the two-piece sleeves with slit shaped hem line and narrow hem. I'm going to make this for myself in red also.


Pattern Description:
Semi-fitted, straight dress, below mid-knee, has side front pleats and back zipper slit with elbow length, long and two-piece sleeves with slit shaped hemline and narrow hem.

Pattern Sizing: I cut size 22 

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope? Yes

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? It was easy and it's a great fit.

Fabric Used: Ponte knit

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I made it floor length for the occasion. 

Would you sew it again?  Would you recommend it to others? Yes and Yes
