Autumn Leaves

Hi ,

My latest make is something made to comply with Make a garment a month

challenge. I used this fabricfabric dress 2a lovely autumn toned sheer pleated synthetic. I immediately decided I wanted another of the Vogue V1410. winter patterns.jpg2This pattern is my favorite at the moment as I intend to make it again for myself and for my sister in law. It is so versatile. I love that there are only 2  pattern pieces and the side seams are french seams so it has a lovely finish.

I found when I cut out this fabric that I was a little short. This meant I had to do some creative cutting and have a seam across the upper bodice, it works and I feel is not to noticeable. I made this to get me thru the warm early autumn days and into what is now quite cool weather. It is sleeveless so I add layers when I wear it.Here is a link to my previous post about this pattern it is a winner in my opinion.

Happy Sewing ,

Sue 🙂
