SEARCHING FOR A PATTERN

kayrosie | Posted in Patterns on

I AM LOOKING FOR A FORMAL WRAP AROUND PATTERN TO MAKE FOR A WEDDING AND I AM HAVING TROUBLE FINDING ONE EXCEPT FOR ONE IN THE VOGUE CATALOG.  IT LOOKS HARD AND COMPLICATED AND I WOULD LIKE A SIMPLE ONE THAT I CAN USE WITH CREPE BACK SATIN OR CASA SATIN.  DOES ANYBODY HAVE ANY HELP FOR ME.

    Dear Kayrosie,

    Is your caps lock stuck on?  It's very hard to read your posts in all caps...

      Thanks for the advise I will take the caps off.  Is this better.

        Yes, kayrosie, that is much better!  Now we can see the beginning and end of each sentence and understand your question better.

    Do you mean a stole ??

    1. kayrosie | | #4

      No I meant a wrap around dress. Sorry.  Like pattern Vogue 8150.  But this one looks to hard and afraid my material would not work with it.  Hard to find one.

        Hi, Kayrosie. On looking at your Vogue Pattern 8150, I notice that the dress has a side zipper, so even though the picture looks somewhat like a wrap-around dress, I don't believe this one actually "wraps around". It is draped in the front bodice, and in the back too in one version, so I'm wondering: is it 1) the draping that appeals to you, or 2) the crossed-over panels with a "wrap" look, or do you really want 3) a dress that wraps around (where the front pieces over-lap each other and fasten at one side)? Sorry that I'm having a difficult time visualizing which aspect of this dress you'd like to simplify and copy.

          Thanks for your input.  Yes I think the way it drapes is what the girl liked, it was for my future daughter-in-law's sister for a gown for the wedding.  She has since changed her mind and picked out another pattern.  So we are go with something else. Thanks anyway for your help. I like the dress but made in a different fabric.  I might actually try it for my daughter for a dress to wear to work in.  It might be a nice dress for that.

    Maybe you haven't heard that in some computer environments ALL CAPS   is considered to be the equivalent of verbal shouting!  I'm sure you did not intend this... just wanted to let you know for future reference.

      Sorry about that.   My caps was on and didn't notice because I work in an office and so often I have to use all caps.  Sorry about that. Never even gave it a thought.
