For this month’s Check It Out challenge I chose Vogue 9100, a “very easy vogue” pattern that proved to be anything but. Has anyone else sewn this pattern? If you have, you’ll know that the skirt pattern pieces are screwed up and it’s Vogue’s printing fault. For some reason the pattern pieces on the skirt are totally off and do not line up. Anyway, after some pattern alterations I finally ended up with a couple of skirt pieces that would work. The only other alteration I made was to add a belt to help cinch the waist in a bit on this full gathered skirt.
The fabric I used is a cotton madras from Hancock Fabrics. I liked the colors on this fabric because they kind of remind me of my grandma for some reason. Looks like colors she’d wear.
The pattern features a beautiful low open back design.

Happy Sewing Everyone!
