Pattern Description: Vogue Easy Options close fitting dress (or fit and flare) with raised neckline collar, self lined bodice and extended shoulders.

Pattern Sizing: 6-8-10-12. I made view C in a 12. It fits pretty well, but I should have made a slight pattern adjustment through the hip to fit me a little better here.

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes, it does.

Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes, they were easy. I made this version up as a wearable muslin for my previously reviewed leather bodice version I reviewed over a year ago.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I like the high collar neckline and the fitted shape. I also like the various views included to make in this pattern, including the longer skirt that I made for this version. No dislikes.

Fabric Used: Dark denim with a slight stretch. I think I bought the fabric at Mill End Store in Milwaukie, OR.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: None!

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Well, I already sewed it twice, so probably no, but I do recommend it.

Conclusion: I have only worn this dress once, but should really break it out and wear it more. I got a couple of compliments on it when I wore it the one time, and my pooch Oliver likes it too, so I guess it's a good one!

If I had a dress that looked like this on me, I would wear it at least once a week. Fantastic.

This looks amazing in the denim! I remember when you made the leather bodice one too - both dresses are gorgeous!
