I found that I love the skirt of the Vogue 7387 pattern, but am not crazy about the bodice. I really like the geometric cuts in the mid-drift and skirt panels section, I think they are very flattering and so 1930's! I think I might want to make the train a bit longer though. I just worry about the train getting destroyed since the wedding is outside and all. I ended up making 5 different tops to find one that I liked best with this skirt. This part was actually a lot of fun, since I love the creativity of designing stuff from scratch! I think I am going to go with one that is similar to the Jenny Packham Aspen dress, only I don't want mine to be so low cut, and I can go without such puffy sleeves.
Below are the pictures of the original bodice on the vogue 7387 pattern. Any thoughts on the bodice?
vogue 1174 reception dress pattern! I found a size that fits perfectly, and I think will be a lot of fun when made with nice fabric. BTW, if anyone else wants to try this pattern, I recommend cutting 3 to 4 sizes smaller than the measurement recommend. It is not sized correctly I guess. I really want to make several dresses with this pattern though, it just fits so nicely! I love the pockets, pleated skirt, and sweetheart neckline :)
