Very Easy Vogue pattern 8824

This is my latest completion. It’s Vogue 8824 knit dress. It really is very easy. Actually, I’m really not sure if this is supposed to be a knit or woven dress. The material list says jersey, linen and crepe. So, I went with a charcoal gray ponte knit. I made the dress in a medium, so I figured the stretch would be a good thing.

The dress does have a very deep V in the front so something needs to be worn under it (unless you’re very brave). So, rather than have to wear another shirt underneath mine, I chose to add a panel in the front to cover most of the V. I don’t always want the additional layers of another shirt. But, here I show that it is easily done.

This picture is with a self-drafted quick cape that I made last year (I think). It’s about 30 degrees and breezy, so I was freezing.

This dress is simple enough to dress up or wear casually. It can also be made with 3/4 sleeves and longer at the bottom (more of a midi length dress).

Quick and practical…that’s my kind of sewing!

  1. That is a great dress to change so many ways with jewelry, scarves, belts, shoes, etc. The cape looks really good with it. Great job! Thanks for sharing.

  2. I love the dress and it was a great idea to put the panel in. I would not be brave enough to wear it without either! I have recently taken up sewing and am so enjoying your blog.

  3. Real simple dress with dramatic potential for dressing up or down. 30 degrees though, I would have on tights, a turtleneck and multi undies. brrrr!!
