Return of Vogue1314

I made Vogue1314 once before here, and decided to try my hand with a few new adjustments to the overall pattern.
 I added a V-neckline. With the warm weather, I decided to go sleeveless. I created a dual fabric garment with a stretch pattern denim and a grey double knit.  I will say, I completely forgot to adjust the pattern to account for the not-so-stretch-stretch-denim.  The dress came out tighter than I anticipated.  I added a side zipper hoping to get it on better; didn't work out too well.  Putting this dress on is like putting on a rubber tire, by the end of the ordeal I became a certified contortionist.  Once the dress was on, it felt good.  Getting the dress off was the same ordeal.  Needless to say, I probably won't wear this again unless I make some major sizing adjustments.  Any suggestions on what I can do?  (I had already did a FBA)

As for the jacket, I made it a few months ago, and can't remember the pattern.  Once I figure out the pattern number. I will give you an update.


  1. Your dress looks just gorgeous! You wouldn't know you were part cirque du soleil.i don't have any suggestions , sorry. And don't even think about dropping an ounce!!! You can't afford to.
