Back again with my sewing machine after having spent some time apart. To celebrate the summer I’ve started on a wrap dress in a gorgeous bright pink and white poly knit from the Gorgeous Fabrics. However bough some time ago so I guess no longer available. The pattern is of course Vogue Pattern’s V8379.


Apart from being inspired by Diane von Furstenburgs famous wrap dresses in general my choice of fabric is inspires by this dress below in particular. My dream DvF dress.


There is even a version for Barbie…


So far I have traced and prepared the pattern with some minor adjustments and crawled around on the floor laying out and pinning down the pattern pieces properly. If one does not have room for a big table what is a girl to do? Besides, it is good exercise.


I finished the preparations by pressed on interfacing, a softer one with some stretch in one direction. Here are all the pieces piled up and ready to assemble.


Hopefully I can continue tomorrow.
