Vogue 8577

I've just finished sewing the buttons on the Vogue 8577 dress. I know they are not the best photos in the world but here goes:

Showing off the full skirt.
My deer-in-headlights look.  

The coppery green coloured buttons
And shoes to pick up the red in the plaid.  


  1. The dress looks AMAZING! I just love that 50's shirtwaist look and with pockets! YAY! The collar is really lovely too!

  2. Oooo, I love the shoulder gathers and the collar and THE POCKETS!! This turned out lovely.

  3. The pockets are my favourite part of the dress, they are so roomy. The pattern for the collar is really cute too. It stands up in the back and falls flat in the front. I should add another picture of the back view of the collar later. I totally recommend the pattern. I would just suggest cutting the lining skirt length a bit shorter than the pattern piece. Otherwise, it was a great pattern.


McCall's 7630: Pullover Top

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 ...
