I make so much of what I wear now, that Husband doesn’t say much other than, “That’s really nice, honey.” . Always supportive. Always. But this dress earned a spot on the “Husband Favorite” list.
I got to wondering why he liked it so much and realized that it was the…curves… it’s the curves. OF COURSE! The hip yoke and back yoke pieces are have such a pretty curve to them. Husband’s eyes…they like curves. Thank you McCall Pattern Company for this one 😉
Vogue 1447 has lovely style lines and though I am not usually a fan of the high low hem, I really like this understated version.
The sundress style of this pattern just screamed to be made in white. I decided to go with two textured fabrics, a white waffle weave and white lace all fully lined with rayon.
It’s a great feeling when you get those intersecting seams to line up perfectly!!
Pattern: Vogue 1447
Fabric used: White cotton poly blend waffle weave, poly lace and rayon lining. (All purchased at Fabricville.)
Instructions: I followed the instructions to the letter and didn’t have any difficulties. This pattern has quite a few pattern pieces, with a few intersecting seams to sew. I enjoyed doing this and my fabric was cooperative…which helps a lot! I would keep this in mind when choosing fabrics to make this pattern.
Changes I made: No changes were made for this one. Bonus!
Repeat worthy? Ummm…only if I could find the perfect fabrics again
Another shot of the pretty lines of this dress…the two fabrics really worked well together.
Happy Friday! Have a great weekend everyone 🙂
Thank you Rianna!!
Gorgeous, Margo! I didn’t see the potential in this pattern at all but I’m a fan of what you made. Love the texture-on-texture!
Thanks Morgan, I was lucky that these fabrics behaved well together. 🙂
What a great interpretation of this pattern. Gorgeous!
Glad you liked it Manju! Thanks
YESSSSSSS!! I love this so much!!
I bought the pattern but I just could NOT see it being made up into a “practical” dress! The pattern envelope seems so busy to me but this is a great example and great inspiration. Thank you so much! You look so lovely <3
I felt the same about the sample on the envelope…a little too busy. Thanks Tasha!!
This dress is stunning! I love the fabrics together as well, and the fit is spot-on. Beautiful!
Oh thank you Masha!
I can see why you hubby likes this dress – it’s beautiful!
Husband surprised me a bit when he liked this one. Thank you Karen!
Lovely!!!!! Your fabric choice is great .
Thank you Nique!!
Lovely dress! Great white fabrics
Sometimes you get lucky and find the perfect fabrics for the pattern 😉 Thanks Linda!
Such a romantic dress! And sexy with those curves! I like the fabric combination- good eye!
Thanks Meg!!! I wasn’t sure about the hemline but I’m glad I didn’t change it this time….it goes well with the curved lines.
This is beautiful. I was going to make this dress last year but it needed so many fit alterations that I couldn’t be bothered. I might give it another try next year after seeing yours.
Awww..thanks Sam. do give it a try!
Lovely dress! I love the use of textured fabric and yokes.
I can see why this is a husband-favourite, you look smashing! I really like how you combined these fabrics!
Haha!Thank you Birgit!
Gorgeous dress, Margo! I really love the fabrics and all the dress details 🙂
Thank you so much Hana!
Stunning dress, the lines and curves are gorgeous and the fabrics you have chosen work perfectly
I had some good luck on my side with this one. Thank you Lynsey!
so pretty, I love a white sundress.
I think that a little white sundress is as necessary as LBD. Thanks Beth!
What a perfect white dress to wear on these beautiful sunny summer days. You continue to impress with your pattern selections, fabric choices and your superb sewing skills. Another winner! 🙂
Aww thanks Almeda!
Husband knows his stuff – your dress gets major heart eyes from here too!
Thank you Nilla!!
Looks SO cool & nice & flowing! You’re right the fabrics work well together. Excellent job!!
It’s so nice when fabrics get along nicely! Thank you Rosalind!
Thank you for sharing this, Margo! It might be just the thing for some lace I bought forever ago! It’s not white though & im not sure this could ever be topped! Your dress is absolutely stunning!
You’re so sweet Amanda! I’m sure yours would be fabulous!!
Very lovely Margo!:) I realized I forgot to re-subscribe once you moved your blog:p I’m going to have to catch up on most of your recent makes. I hope you’re having a great summer:)
Thanks Rikki! I hope you are enjoying yours too!
The lines are gorgeous! I can see why your husband likes it. The fabric combo looks perfect too. My husband is the same, very supportive, but sometimes I think he gets sick of me asking what her thinks. 😉
Thanks Heather! I don’t even ask hi what he thinks anymore…I just wait to see what he offers. lol
I can understand why it is your husband’s favourite. It is stunning. But I have to ask the question, why are men so besotted with lace?
Good question Gail…who knows why they like it?? Thanks!!
So, so pretty!!
just stunning! in every single way 🙂
This is stunning Margo!! What a lovely shape, and I like effect of the waffle weave with the delicate lace, they work so well together.
You dress is beautiful. I saw the line art and I found it to be a beautiful design so I purchased the pattern. I then looked for posted reviews but there are hardly any. You version of the dress is lovely even without all the piping, bias binding and exposed zipper. I will definitely lean more towards you have done. It’s absolutely stunning!
