The Sew Along

The Sew Along will take you step by step through the pattern. I’ve added some couture tips and tricks to elevate your look and amp up your sewing skills.

Kimono Sleeves

The grown-on Kimono sleeves make this dress/caftan quick and easy. Since you don’t have to stitch a set in sleeve, it is a one seam and done process.

Deep V Neck

The deep V neckline can be a bit of an issue for some people – me included. So I went to a quick and easy pattern hack.

Pattern Hack

By making a fabric triangle from the same fabric as the top, I turned my Vogue Pattern plunging low neckline into a beautiful and wearable dress.

Bias Binding

Creating your own bias binding is a must. It is a simple process and can finish the bodice neckline adding couture details to your finished dress.

You can learn how to make and apply bias binding here.

The Fabric And Pattern

You can find Vogue 1735 (formerly 9253) at Minerva. This dress is floaty, so the perfect fabric is something with lots of movement and excellent drape. If you love fabric shopping, try out some of my favorite fabric shops — ordering online is the best!
