A review of Vogue Dress V9197

Reviewed by seams_that_way on 16th April, 2020

So… this dress started as vogue 9197. I had the worst time trying to fit this bodice and at the end it was completely redrafted during a fitting class I attended. The neckline is borrowed from By Hand London Jenna dress.
I love the finished dress but I can’t really recommend this pattern. Fitting it was a nightmare, at least for me.

The fabric I used is a viscose with a bit of stretch. The bodice is self-lined. Hem finished with bias tape.
