Pattern Review: Vogue Pattern V9021

I've been meaning to try this Vogue V9021 pattern for a while now and when I saw it was half price over on I finally got round to buying it. It's part of their Very Easy range so as I was at a loose end this weekend I decided to give it a go.

The sewing part only took a day, which is great because my sewing projects normally take weeks.  It was nice to have a finished dress so quickly!  There only fiddly bit in this pattern is making sure that the dart lines match up on the top and skirt when you're connecting them.  The pattern tells you to baste first which allows you to make sure that everything lines up perfectly - this was especially important with my chosen tartan fabric (I do like to make things hard for myself).

The only change I made to the pattern was to use a concealed zip instead of the standard one hidden by a fold as the pattern suggests but that's just down to my personal preference. 

Overall I'm pretty happy with the result, what do you think?

The back and hem need a bit of a press but I was too excited and couldn't wait to share this with you as it is :) 

I'd definitely recommend this pattern.  Not only is it relatively quick and easy but the shape of the sleeves are both stylish and eye catching.  I'm already planning a pattern hack with this, a chiffon version with a full circle skirt perfect for summer.

Have you made this dress up?

  1. Your dress is perfection, I love the choice of fabric.

    V9021 is easily my favourite Vogue pattern.

    Nicely done :-)
