This dress.... I love it...I don't love it...I love it.... I don't love it....and on it goes! I really like the fabric... it is a blue and white floral with very subtle polka dots in the blue background. Does it get any better!? All my favorite things in one fabric! The bodice of Vogue 8870 is great... it's the hemline that I'm fighting with.
The silhouette is just feels "off" to me.....
I thought I would like a high-low hem but I wish that I had made it into a maxi. I would have worn and loved this as a maxi dress. I don't want to go buy more fabric and take it apart so I think I will first try to trim the hemline like view A. Maybe the less severe high-low version will be more to my liking.
Pattern: Vogue 8870
Fabric used: A pretty textured voile.
Instructions: The instructions were great. This is rated as very easy and I found that to be true.
Changes I made: Absolutely none! Not one!
Repeat worthy? Yes! The bodice of this dress is perfect for a summer sundress and I like the twin straps. You could very easily change the straps into one single wide one for more bra strap coverage. Next time I make this I will cut the skirt into a maxi...which shouldn't be too hard.
So...what's your take on the high-low dress/skirt thing? Is it a high or a low for you?
