In the wardrobe / Royal blue ponte dress V9202
« on: August 13, 2018, 07:29:26 AM »
I cut the dress out yesterday, it took ages but I did keep stopping every time my back complained. I compared the bodice pattern pieces with Simplicity 2247 and they are the same size, I have cut a B cup this time as the C cup I chose for S2247 3 years ago is now a bit big on me and using ponte this time will I hope give a bit of stretch.

I couldn't see any label in the envelope yesterday when I sorted out the pattern pieces I would need after checking my bust and high bust measurements to get the right cup size. Maybe they have stopped including labels. I'll be ready to start cutting out when the weather cools down but I'm toying with idea of two colours but haven't got any suitable contrast ponte. The full skirted version is similar to one of my favourites - Simplicity 2247 - apart from the neckline and the top of the sleeves so I know this style suits my shape.

Thanks everyone for your helpful comments, my friend keeps saying he is going to design a label for me to put in the clothes I make for myself, I think it is an awful idea especially as the name he comes up with is "Junique" :S  uniquely made by June.

I have read that the sizing is somewhat generous so although I don't often make a toile I will in this case as I am not familiar with sewing Vogue patterns. The more I look at the pattern the more I like it.

I chose this one because I like the curved seam under the bust and as Morgan said there are several variations in the one pattern.

This is the first Vogue pattern   I have bought and.. cost me £14.75. Has anybody made this?  I was thinking of making View F in a plain colour Ponte. The other pattern I got was McCalls 7122     I like the raglan sleeve as a change but not so keen on the slight flair in the skirt, the photo of the model looks better than the line drawings.

Are you my long lost twin @wrenkins ? It is misplaced apostrophes and spelling errors too.

I am really pleased with my shopping bag even though working on it yesterday was a hot and clammy affair.
 Can't wait to go shopping :)

I have finished sewing the lining and am pleased with the bottom corners, there is no wrinkling or bunching ..phew and I have sewn the handles on to the main bag, I have just got to iron on the fusible interfacing to the side/bottom strip for the outer bag (forgot to do it earlier) and sew it up as carefully as I can to get good sharp corners and then pop the lining in, it doesn't sound much work but in this heat I can't work for too long. To be continued...

I've got the lining and the outer pinned ready for when I feel like sewing and it is a bit cooler, came home early from town because of the heat but I have managed to cook and eat a frittata to use up the veggies in the fridge.
This is how far I've got - pic taken of outer before pinning.The lining is made in the blue floral.
