Vogue 8977 | Making a Dramatic Exit!

12:30 PM

I love cute, easy-to-throw-on summer dresses that will look amazing with heels or flats.  Because I love versatility and getting mileage out of my clothes.  And this dress fits that bill!  
I picked Vogue 8977 for this project.  I liked this pattern the moment I saw it and I only envisioned it as a dress.  
I've had this beautiful cayenne red orange viscose fabric from Mood Fabrics.com in my stash for a while.  It has an interesting texture and a nice medium weight.  
I cut a size 14 in this dress and it still had a lot of ease.  It's a tent... no, really it is.  I had to remove about 4" from each side.  Other than that, I just measured from the shoulder and lengthened.  And I omitted the buttons down the back.
I love this little dress!  And I plan to add a few more of these to my spring/summer wardrobe!

    1. Funny thing about the jacket: I hadn't even planned to wear it. But I knew the temp was going to drop when it got dark, so it was the easiest option to grab! Thanks Divamazon!
