Giveaway – Vogue 8766

I’m such a Luddite.

I recently signed up to the Craftsy “Sew the Perfect Fit” course in readiness for the Baker’s Dozen Dresses Project.  I’m really hoping to improve my fitting skills this year and combining the two seems like a great way of educating myself and getting some clothes into my wardrobe at the same time.

I managed to completely order the wrong sized pattern.  Craftsy kindly sent me the right size and told me to do with the other as I saw fit, even though it was my error.  Thanks, Craftsy, you really didn’t need to do that!

I see fit to offer it to you guys!

V8766Whilst I think the envelope photography leaves much to be desired…as always…this is actually a cracking basic pattern.  And the strapless version with the full skirt would be great for knocking off this Anthropologie dress

Anthro butterfly dressI suspect that the original has a pleated waist, which is not a great look for me, so V8766 is a more flattering option!

Anyway…I digress…I’m thinking of the butterfly fabric in my stash!


Enough with the rambling…if you’d like this pattern, in sizes 6-12, please leave a comment.

Giveaway ends on Wednesday 20th.

Open internationally.

    Oh, I’ve signed up for this course too, my pattern arrived today, so please don’t put me in for the giveaway. Your version is going to look fabulous in that butterfly fabric. I’ve no idea what I shall make mine up in, not got that far yet.

    What a great pattern! Looks like you could use it as a base to make pretty much any dress you could dream up/want to imitate!
    I’d love to be in with a chance

  7. Sue Taylor says:

    I love the look of the long strappy version, but any of them would be a great dress for summer

  8. I confirm it’s a really nice and basic pattern You can really use it to make your basic blocks and then alter it as needed. I look forward to seeing your muslin…mine is still work in progress…get ready to take some photos! (you don’t need to enter me)
