V8968| Splattered and Tye Dyed

This Vogue was rated  very easy, but I found myself stumped a couple times.

I chose to do the v-neck version, and that part was pretty easy!

But the hem which was cut on the crossgrain, which you have to cut out 4 times!
Well that somehow gave me the Blues.

It wasnt cutting it out, just sewing it to the upper half of the dress! I had to
rip it apart a few times because the angles or points was not lining up or falling right!!

I had to put it down a couple days and come back to it, wine in hand
 and just attach it the best I could.

I'm all about comfort and coolness with the Texas summer approaching, so this 
project wasn't going to get the best of me, lol.

After that less than epic battle with tha  "Very Easy Vogue" I thought it would look cute with my favorite sunnies. I'm really digging this tye-dye/splatter effect on this fabric and even more-so since it compliments my orangish hair color, lol. As much as I like this dress, nurp, won't be making it again!!

Till my next post,

  8. i know it's been years but maybe you remember. The dress looks huge,boxy through the bodice and waist and it looks more fitted on the pattern drawing. Which was it? thanks!
