Vogue Dress Pattern 1043... Finished.


The dress is finished and it fits like a dream.  I absolutely adore this pattern.

The only pattern adjustment that I had to do was to shorten the hem to fit my five-foot-one stature.  The short kimono sleeves are cute, the tucks across the bodice front are placed perfectly for a nice fit.

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the pattern.  Three spools out of three for sure!

  2. Thank you. I like working with this pattern, the instruction with the pattern for the underarm gusset were perfect.
