Vogue 8919 - Again!

Got my money's worth with this pattern.  This is View B.  View A was blogged about in a previous post. 
   I got this fabric on clearance at Jo Ann Fabrics.  Something about the way it felt.  It's a slinky ribbed knit.  I know...somewhere there is a proper name for it...if you know where to find it let me know. I should warn you though...I've not looked.
 It is much lighter than the fabric used in the previous version. More like what the pattern calls for.   
  If you didn't know it, you may not even think they (the two dresses) were cut from the same pattern. They look quite different from one another.  I like that.  
 
Thankfully it was a warm day today yesterday - unseasonably (and kind of eerily) so - otherwise I would have layered it up.
Not much more to say about this dress but I will reiterate that it is a very easy sew and the possibilities seem endless.
HAVE A GREAT WEEK!!!  
Until next time...PEACE AND BLESSINGS!!!!!

  1. I never would have guessed this was V8919. The seaming is completely hidden. You did a great job!

  4. It looks so completely different - I love it ( I liked the others as well). It's amazing what a difference using a different fabric makes. Two uber smart, this one more ladylike and feminine.

  5. The first one is my favorite...the way you switched the color blocking in the back had me scrolling up and down repeatedly...I love it!!! This one is beautiful and at first glance it sure doesn't look like the same pattern. Yes you did get your money's worth out of that pattern!!! Both dresses look beautiful on you!!!

  8. It does look different, but it is still very pretty! I love it when fabric "calls" out to you, and you create something amazing!

  9. I love both versions you made of this pattern. So different. And the way the stripes meet up on the second version is really interesting.
