Navy & Coral Wedding Outfit

Vogue 8280

Here’s my second attempt at Vogue 8280, also for a wedding.  This time I made
the top half in size 12 and bottom half in size 14 which made a huge difference to the fitting issues.  A bit of stretch in the fabric is also far more forgiving!

Its funny how much quicker and easier the same pattern can be second time around!

The sleeveless version is great for a summer wedding, and there are so many more versions of this you could make without them looking like they have come from the same pattern…. the possibilities are endless!
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:

If I made it again I could still take a little off the shoulders, but a pretty good fit all over.

Love the pattern, and I have two very wearable dresses out of it in two months!

  1. This is just the sort of inspiration I need… thank you! I have the same pattern. Just looking for the right fabric!
