Vogue 8791, saved.
I should have made a muslin.
I cut the pattern out in a size 14 and it fits in the bust area, not so in the below waist area.
Some people gain wisdom when they age, I gained a generous back side. If only I gained wisdom, I would have cut a muslin.
The silk tunic has been sitting off in the corner as a constant reminder of my foolish ways. Today, it is sitting on my sewing table about to find a new home.
My sister-in-law was over when her daughter came over to try on her dress. I just happened to ask if she would like to try it on. It fits! Sew, I've finished it off.
The pattern is a lovely and it is easy to piece together. The description states that it is semi-fitted, maybe in the bust-line.
I wouldn't want to discourage anyone from making it. Even though it didn't work for me, it did work for my sister-in-law.
Another note: It does call for fusible interfacing that is used in the bodice centre front pieces. If I were to make it again, I not so sure that I would bother with the interfacing.
I would just take care to sew a muslin before hand, especially if you're like me and have been blessed with curves instead of wisdom.
