This is Vogue pattern 9109 lengthened to a dress. I've been following this pattern on Pattern Review for a while wondering about finally using this red fabric I thrifted some time ago. I decided to go for it and I think the result is pretty good for a summer project. My motivation to sew in the summer really waxes and wanes- I love the excuse/idea of sewing a dress for my summer wedding anniversary but when it gets down to it a lot of times I'd rather be outside! So as far and a semi-dressy/not overly involved sewing/anniversary dress goes this was a good choice.
Pattern: I did manage to make the pattern a little fussier than it was originally drafted to be by making facings to finish the neck and armscye (thanks to this review on Pattern Review) I didn't want the dress to have a bias finish look. I also ended up shaving away width from about the bust-line down as I went and did a little shaping in the back with the center back seam line. I used a size 10 in the shoulder/bustline and 12 in hips.
