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!  


  1. Just found this, love it. This is one of those times where the dress looks better than the illustration! You look great. I may have to try this one too!

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

It's an easy sewing project for a loose-fitting pullover top. It's my second go with this pattern and I still want to make another ...
