Second Time Around for Vogue 8825




Vogue 8825 is still pretty popular.  I made my first version in 2012.  It was one of my favorite dresses of that year.  I knew I would make it again, but didn't know when. 

So to help speed up my little stash reduction project, I decided to make it again .  Why?  Because I like it; it's quick and easy.  (Side note:  my knit fabric collection is getting out of control.)


The weather was great last weekend.  These pictures were taken in Ogden Park. 


I didn't have enough fabric to make the length of the belt and I had to cute the sleeve band into two pieces.  The sewing process was much faster this time, because I didn't stop to try it on until the entire dress was done, except for the hem.

I can't say that this will be the last time I make it, cause I still like it a lot.

Happy Sewing!

  1. Love your fabric. I really like this without that super long tie. I have one version of this dress, and really enjoy wearing it, too. Thanks for reminding me about this pattern.
