The Unexpected Muslin – Vena Cava Vogue 1258

February 7, 2012

My bad. I chose a stable cotton knit and although it makes the dress as comfy as a t-shirt, it doesn’t use the “wow”-factor of the pattern to its fullest. I think that’s what’s keeping me from hemming it at the moment. I’m picturing this in a viscose jersey in some kind of red or maybe even in a feline print.

What I like about this dress is that it’s a rather easy sew for a designer pattern: only 21 steps, which is way underaverage for Vogue. It hides what’s left of my front bump and makes a flattering figure from the front and back. The puffiness is not as flattering on the side view but I can live with that. I like that it has pockets. The main dislike is that it’s not nursing-friendly but hey, I won’t be nursing forever. Mama’ll get her groove back eventually! Also, it doesn’t allow for big steps but again, it might be due to the fabric rather than a characteristic of the pattern.

Let me know what you think

    I too did not use a slinky knit so I wonder if it is worth a do over. I’m going to try and tweak the one I’ve started but I don’t think I will try again. If I could just get some of that puffiness out the front I would be happy….maybe do more pleating. The grey is looks really cute.

    Hem it and use it as Tim Gunn’s sweatsuit alternative. You will be super chic at the grocery store and/or playground…

    Maybe it’s lack of imagination but I like it in the grey! Red would be awesome though. Wasn’t keen on this one when I saw the pattern pic but it seems to make up really well.
