DIY SHIFT DRESS WITH A TWIST- VOGUE PATTERN V8805

Hi guys. I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. Man the days, weeks, and months are really flying by, can you believe almost half of the year is already behind us. Time waits for no one, which brings me to the topic of this dress I’m wearing. While during some spring cleaning I came across this UFO (unfinished outfit) lets just say I started on this project around July 2017 and unfortunately didn’t pick it back up until last week sometime. You’re probably wondering why I didn’t see the project through until now, well for me whenever I hit a rough patch in reference to sewing issues or difficulties, I sometimes find myself getting discouraged and just simply tossing it to the side and moving on to the next project.

So in this particular case, I was having issues with the neck band and for the life of me I couldn’t get it to lie down smoothly like is should(which neckbands are STILL something I struggle with SIGH). I took this neck band seam a-loose and re-attached it in what seemed liked 100 times to the point where I was tearing up the fabric, so I was like screw this, I’m over it!!

Moving along, after recently coming across this dress while cleaning, I decided to pull this baby back out and give this neck band thang another try WELP I still didn’t get it right to the point where I was satisfied. Oh and yeah, I actually made a detachable black collar to wear over this jacked up neckband, but hadn’t realized that I didn’t wear it until I got home and started looking through the pics and I was like hmmmm something is missing and yep I forgot to add the collar…. I was so disappointed. But you know what, I’m still going to rock this baby because I like everything about this dress and I specifically made the dress in this color to rock with these BAD *** pair of Valentino shoes that I’ve only wore once (I buy shoes, just to let them collect dust in my closet, but that’s a whole nothing post). Lastly, I made a few alterations to dress by adding ruffled sleeves and a ruffled hem.

Be blessed. I hope you all like the pics and enjoyed the post.
