V8280_10_large

Description

This is the very popular V8280, Roland Mouret Galaxy Dress copy by Vogue! I made a toile to check the sleeves as so many have had comments to make, likening them to American football atire! I needed this dress to come together quickly and without too much jip so I omitted the sleeves. Was a bit worried it would look boring but actually its a really nice fitting classy dress!

I had to take the bodice in a couple of inches under the arm but that was relatively easy. And though the pattern only calls for lining in the bodice, I lined the skirt too.

I used a beautiful wool crepe and lined with silk.

    I’m a big fan! have the pattern waiting for me for some years because I didn’t had the courage. But with your beautifull example, I sure have to start on it!

      I had mine a while too but if you take it nice and slow there really is nothing complicated about this one. The sleeves might take a little patience but even they are not that tricky really. Good luck with yours. Will look forward to seeing it! :-)

      Thank you! I think you are right. With a cardigan it dresses down and with heels and nice jewellery it dresses up!

      He he…. thank you lovely Ralf! I’ve always been scared of Vogue patterns as there has been much talk of the instructions being ‘vague’ but it was relatively simple and I really enjoyed making it.

    oh this looks like a different dress sans sleeves…funny how that works…I really like it though somehow its less starchy than the original yet still very stylish!

      Thank you smallone. I know what you mean. I think the fabric has something to do with it looking less starchy. I will try a version with the sleeves when I get some more time. They are a great detail!

      Thank you so much Adriana. I do love this colour! I can’t claim too much credit for the fit as the pattern itself is so well drafted. I simply took it in a bit at the sides and added a bit on the waist!
