What's Next? - Finishing Up The Fall Collection

Two more dresses (V8411-C and S3673-A) for me and the final pieces (S3690)of the UCG Fall Collection 2007 for DD. I really pondered making these next two dresses. Linda (Danvillegirl) suggested that I ask Dawn (Secret Pocket) for a possible fitting solution for V8411, and Ann (Gorgeous Things) suggested that I take a look at Summerset's blog on S3673 for a better understanding on the sizing of this pattern. Thanks everyone. Both dresses will be cut at size 14. These will be the last two dresses for a while. I want finish up some of my UFO's and try a few pieces from the November 2007 Burda Magazine. As for DD, she wants View D and A (S3690). I think I'll add a pocket to the pants. DD is entering the second semester of her junior year and is starting to prepare for the internship program. She will probably use this as an interview outfit. I have some black wool crepe that will be perfect for this.


  1. I made the pleated V8411 dress for my daughter. It was NOT an easy dress to make, but I was happy enough with the results (and she wore it a whole TWO times...sigh...)

    Did we talk about this dress already? It seems I spoke to someone about making an FBA for it. It looks great on your shoulders. I like the belted version.

  2. Hi Dawn, You and I exchanged a few e-mails regarding FBA for V8411in November. I like the belted version too. Thanks again.
