Royal Blue Summer Dess

This dress is made from Vogue 8446. I fell in love with this dress and the colour of the fabric that it showed on the cover and here it is.

I really hate pleating and I did curse I couple of times whilst making it, but it was worth it. I wish I had a photo of me wearing it as it sits really well.

Material Notes

Slightly stretchy fabric (polyester I think)
Lining material
Invisible Zip




Garment Type
Business, Casual, Classic, Evening Wear

    Lovely dress! I especially like the shoulders, and you did a nice job with the pleating there!

    This is so beautiful. I always battle with hemming neatly, I’m quite jealous of yours :-)

    Thanks everyone. This site is a gem. It really gives me the much needed confidence boost. None of my friends can sew so they’re always marvelled at my stuff, but it means more from people who actually sew and the majority of you are very talented. So thanks a lot. xx

      Thank you. I wanted a photo too, but my useless husband wouldn’t take it because he was sorting out car insurance. Lol

      Lol :-D A couple of people in here have asked about photos of me, wearing my projects too. I’m sorta my bf’s “photography-muse”, but I seem to keep on forgetting to bring the project here, from my place. But I’m sure one day I’ll remember :-) Maybe you can try and bribe your husband with a nice dinner or something? ;-)
