I couldn’t help it. The shiny fabric had to come home with me. It was supposed to become a pair of pants for dance, but as you can see it became a dress instead.
As a pattern review, I made View B of Vogue 8921.
I chose the size (6) based on the finished garment bust measurement on the package (34 in). I omitted the sleeves because it’s hot here (in the good old summertime) and I omitted the zipper, because my fabric is stretchy enough that I don’t mind pulling it on over my head. I ended up cutting the back pieces on the fold to eliminate that seam.
This dress was relatively easy to put together, especially since I left off the zipper and sleeves. I would like to note that I’m pretty sure I cut my crossover pieces as directed and that means that they do not stretch across my body, so that tightened my waistline a bit. I prefer it, but if you want it to stretch you may want to alter the piece placement when you cut.
Overall, I like this pattern, and I will probably make both a shorter, tighter version as well as a floor-length version with sleeves for fall/winter.
