Another Red Dress for My Daughter in Review - Vogue 9021

Another Red Dress for My Daughter in Review – Vogue

Red is definitely one of “our” favorite colors.  Honestly, when I see red fabric in the stores, I’m drawn to it.  I have to go by it and touch it to see if it’s something that I’d like to create a dress or a pair of pants.  The same happens when I shop online.  I purposely search “red”. 

Sure “we” like other colors too, but red is one of those colors “we” never get enough.  This red knit is from FabricMart Fabrics.  I ordered it last summer, cut the dress out last fall, and finally sewed the dress early March.

This was other very easy Vogue (V9021) dresses.  It told only a few hours to make.

Pattern Description:  Fitted dress has front and back extending into flutter sleeves, low armholes, back zipper and hemline slit.  Sizes 6 to 22 are available. I used sizes 10 and 12 making adjustment along the side seams for view A.

Difficult:  Not, super easy.   There was nothing difficult or confusing in the construction process or in the instruction guide sheet.

I liked the shape of the sleeve and armhole.  Something a little different is good sometimes. No dislikes.

Changes made: No serious changes made.  I only omitted the sleeve/side facings.  A narrow hem was perfect.  The Suggested fabrics were all woven.  I used a medium weight knit instead.  

This is a very easy vogue dress pattern.  Any level of sewist should be able to make it.  After I finished it, I was very happy with the results and so was my daughter.  Now, I have a few more things in her sewing project bag to finish before summer.  Stay tune.

Happy Sewing!


  1. Your daughter looks cute in this dress and in red! I love the timeline on this cause I would have forgotten all about it if I cut it out and let is sit so long!

  3. What a lovely classic dress, with a twist. Your daughter carries the colour so well and the dress is a perfect fit.
