Made by a Fabricista: Bold Colors and Vogue 1394

Days before I depart on vacation, I had several yards of this beautiful fabric from Fabric Mart Fabrics (HERE) and no ideas of what to make.  The fabric literally spoke to me!  I searched and searched through my pattern stash and came across V1394.  I opted to use this pattern because as a challenge to my patience.  I've had this pattern for quite some time, but as you may know if you follow me, I don't wear dresses that often.  I tend to choose those easy, and time friendly projects that I can whip up in one day and move on to the next.

I made the following adjustments to the pattern:
1) I shortened the shirt by 2 inches.

2) I lined the bodice of the dress only.
3) I extended the buttons in the back to the bottom of the dress,

The pleats on this dress alone took me an hour.  In all, there are a total of 21 pleats!

The remainder of the dress was constructed as per the pattern instructions.  I must say, I admired the 6 pieces that constructed the skirt, I might actually use it again for a nice flared skirt instead of the traditional circle skirt,

Happy Sewing!
