Review: Vogue 8772 | Celery Gingham + Coral!

12:00 AM

Lately, I've been obsessing big time over gingham!  I've dedicated a board on Pinterest entirely to it.
One of the easiest inspired garments to create is a shirt. Since this is a printed shirt, I decided to use a button front shirt pattern -- Vogue 8772,  that was tailored and didn't have any pockets.  Pockets, gingham and my boobs?  That equals a lot going on!  So I passed on shirt pockets.  
The shirt was pretty straight forward -- that is if you've previously made a shirt before.  If you haven't, this is a good one to learn on.  It has all of the components of a button front shirt and would be a great one to practice on.  
I love that this shirt has horizontal and vertical darts in the front and vertical darts in the back.  This mean you should get a really good fit without a lot of nipping and tucking.   I did however have to add an inch to the waist for that tiny bit of additional length.
And I bought my gingham fabric during one of the sales that Hancock had a few weeks ago. 
Here's Isabella in her matching gingham shorts!
Wearing:  shirt: Vogue 8772; shorts: Old Navy; earrings: Marc Marc Jacobs; purse: Street Style from Lotus Boutique:  ; sandals: Ciao Bella (old) ; sunnies:  Karen Walker; belt: The Limited.

  1. I love your shirt. I'm pretty obsessed myself and have a few cuts pre-washed and ready to go. I am a little worried about lining everything up but I'm going to just go for it and see how it turns out. Any tips would be appreciated. Your Isabella is adorable, she's so lucky to have such a young and fab g'ma.

  2. Nice shirt! I'm about to embark on my first tailored type blouse soon, but not in gingham. No, first run will be a solid. I did, however, make a maxi dress out of light weight gingham flannel. I absolutely LOVE it.

  6. Lovely shirt! The gingham looks so good on it! I´m working at the same pattern right now, stripes and dots for me. I wonder: is this pattern true to the measures or did you have to make some adjustments?

    1. Merche Martinez, I always make some sort of adjustment. A nip here, a tuck there. This pattern is a very straight and slim-fitting style shirt. I've made shirts that have a different fit. Thanks!

  10. ok...normally I'm not a gingham person but you make a girl want to change her fashion religion sometimes. That outfit is perfect (so is your little Isabella---stepping right in her g'ma's shoes). :)

  14. I love your shirt. I have been seeing them all over the stores here in NY. The color combo works really nicely together. Isabella is such a cutie.

  15. I love the color combo, your outfits always look so well planned. The darker green purse, neutral belt and shoes make for an outfit that goes together, but isn't matchy-matchy! I must mention the length of your shorts is perfect!

  17. It's funny how my time on blogs have allowed me to see gingham differently. Here it's used to make school uniforms.. every colour u can think of, I would never ever have thought to wear it casually. Cultural difference I tell ya

  19. I like that you didn't put pockets on it. That would've made it Elly Mae/country and leaving them off gives it panache. I'll have to try that pattern - so many options! Oh and sorry but that baby is waaayyy more adorable! ;-)

  20. Umjudis, the Elly Mae/country comment made me LOL! Thanks!
