Red Houndstooth ~ Vogue 9146




Whew! Today was a day !  You ever have one of those off days that doesn't really feel like a off day because you spend so much time running that you have NO time for yourself?
  TODAY... was one of those days ! 
 I did however find time a midst all the running to get some pictures of my latest make Vogue 9146 !!






When I decided to use this fabric I knew that it had a busy print so it needed a simple silhouette ..







I really chose to make this dress because I had been gifted some beautiful winter fabrics and didn't just want them to go to waste :) This one was my favorite so I began with it!

I am not positive on the EXACT content of the fabric but I know that it has wool in it and I love the look and feel of it !! 





 I love how it turned out and it is perfect for these COLD winter days !



The dress is sooo comfortable !
I'm all about Chic and Comfortable so this will be the perfect addition to my wardrobe!


 I feel that the color and texture of the fabric lends itself to the Vintage Era !
 I chose to pair it with nude heels ,a cute puff toboggan and a nude bag to help seal that Vintage Deal!



The pattern was a breeze to follow . 
I followed the instructions for the bodice and winged it from there. 

Alterations :
Instead of using the skirt pattern pieces that came with the pattern, I cut two pieces the width of my fabric (60") and my desired length (42") . 

I then gathered those pieces to match the width of the front and back bodice . 

Before connecting them I added my pockets 5"  below the waist  ( on both the front and back pieces) and conneted them together. 
I followed the instructions to add my zipper and then hemmed the bottom!   

Wala !! 


Oh ! I did extend the arms 2" to accommodate my wingspan ! 






Accessories : 
Hat : Rue21 (old)

Necklace : Kendra Scott

( Exact bag is no longer available but link is to similar) 









Until Next time !! XOXOXO
