I finished this Victory Patterns Hazel dress and snapped some pictures just in time for Thanksgiving dinner. This is my second sew with Victory Patterns (see my Ava) and I am once again pleased with the end results.
I don’t have to much to say about this project. I just love everything about it! The fabric, the bow, the sleeves, the fit….it’s all perfect in my eyes. The construction was also a breeze! The fabric is from Robert Kaufman’s chambray collection and was purchased from Hawthorne Threads. The fabric for the top is called Dot Chambray in Indigo and the bottom is called Chambray in Indigo. I really need to get my hands on some more of the dots. It would make the perfect infinity scarf! I cut a 2 for the top and graded out to a 6 for the waist and hips. I made no other changes and I’m happy with the fit. This dress came together quickly. I was even a good little seamstress and stitched my sleeve bands and hem down invisibly by hand. So happy I took the extra time to do that. That’s all I have….enjoy the rest of the pictures!
Piper is saying, “hurry up mom, there is turkey waiting for me at Grandma and Grandpa’s house”.
I plan on trying this pattern with one of the silkier/scarier recommended fabric options. There is no zipper and it’s an easy sew, so it would be a good project to attempt with a silk, georgette, or chiffon. I should have picked up something while I was at The Fabric Store in LA!
I purchased this pattern at my local fabric shop, Five Eighth Seams, buy one get one half off sale. I went a little crazy and purchased 6 patterns that day! It’s not often you can get patterns on sale, so I figured I better stock up. They sell the entire Victory Patterns collection, so I went ahead and picked up the Nicola and Chloe. I can’t wait to try them!
