Vogue 8380

I've finally made it!!  I've had this pattern for years and the fabric too.  I've admired other people's versions of this dress and now I can say I love it too!  It was a very easy pattern to follow, it's lovely to wear and I think I'll definitely be making another one!  The cotton is from Tessuti.  It is lovely and cool for Summer in Sydney.  Sorry about the photo - I'm home alone (well with 2 little 7 month old girls) so it's the best I could do for now - I really don't think it does it justice...  I am very excited about it though, it's been a while since I've sewn something for me to wear and the fact that I finished it this morning and am now wearing it is a good sign! 

Next I really want to tackle some dresses from the Japanese Sewing Books.  There's a few I've been admiring of other clever chicks so now I'd like to try it too.  I just need some tracing paper and I'm off....

A visit to Tessuti on Monday and way too much money spent means I've got lots of lovely fabrics now... it's just a matter of choosing which fabric for which pattern!  One will definitley be another of these 8380's.
