Vogue 1224 - Tracy Reese


Project Details:


Pattern Sizing: 8-24, I cut the 16
Description: Partially lined, pullover dress has short dolman sleeves elastic waistline and neckline with tie ends, stiched hems and above mid-knee length. Purchased stoppers for tie ends.

Did it look like the pattern envelope when you were done sewing it? Yes it does!
Fabric: Rayon Print (97% rayon/3% lycra) from Denver Fabrics.com
Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes they were. They were extremely easy and a beginner could easily handle this with no problem.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I love designer Tracy Reese and pretty much anything that she attaches her name to!
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made? I added 1" to the bodice pieces and 3" to the hemline. If you've read other reviews, you already know that this dress is short. I have no problem with the length -- after I made my usually alterations. I like where the designer intended for it to fall. It's perfect for warm weather with cute sandals!
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Even though I think this dress is so adorable, I have SO MANY dresses to get to for this Spring and Summer. But I do recommend it -- with alterations if you like.

  2. Hi! I found you by browsing different blogs. I just bought my first sewing machine and I can't wait for the day when I can make things like what you have on your blog! My first project ever was a sewing machine cover...last week. I'm about to tear apart a boatneck shirt to use it as a pattern for a dress.

    I can't believe you don't have comments on some of these entries! You have talent galore!

    Warm greeting from PR- Patty

    I had PLENTY of comments. I "upgraded" my site and lost ALL of my comments. No biggie, they're in my heart! Thanks for commenting.
