Vogue 1314 - Dolce and Gabbana Floral Print Inspired Dress

Good evening everyone,

I hope everyone enjoyed their weekend.  It went by so quickly.  Anyway..,

This is another post about sewing with one of my favorite TNT patterns.  Last night I made another dress using Vogue 1314, the lining pattern front and back.  This is my favorite t-shirt TNT pattern.  To date I've made five dresses and two t-shirts.

Not bad for getting the most out of a pattern.  After I finished this floral edition, I think I better copy it onto some issue paper for a back up.  Tee Hee.

This project was quick and easy.  I had no fit issues to resolve. Sewing time was about 3.5 hours.  I used a knit from Fabricmart Fabric. It has a soft hand and very easy to work with. 

My inspiration for this version comes from one of my favorite fashion designers, Dolce & Gabbana.  I simply love the floral dresses, short and long.  The inspiration fashion is above.

I cut the sleeves at 3/4 length and added ruffles.  I also shorten the front and back by 4.5 inches and added a 10 inch ruffle.  No other changes except those that I normally make.  You can read about my other versions here.

That's all for now!

Happy Sewing,


  1. I knew yours would be just as pretty as a D&G original! And I dare say it is nicely made as well.

  2. I looked back through your posts and love the multiple mash-ups you've made with this pattern. Yours is the best fitting t-shirt/dress pattern I've seen, and I think the key is your FBA with dart. I've been watching dartless FBAs but haven't been convinced they really sit right for larger busts. You've firmed my view.

  3. wonderful dress. Looks great on you.

  4. very glamorous and very D&G. looks great on you.

  5. Your dress is beautiful! I can see why you love this pattern!

  6. Wow! That is a beautiful dress, love your style!

  7. Those ruffles are so sweet. Looks great, Cenetta!


  8. Your dress is very beautiful. I like it very much, very suitable for walks

  9. You always look classy in everything you make, and this dress is no exception. Very lovely print.

  10. Very cute dress! I love the fabric you selected to create this and the style suits you perfectly!
