There are about nine reviews already on Pattern Review for Vogue 8813. Everyone seems to love it. It is a vintage sort of dress without being at all stuffy, and certainly not fitted. Definitely has a little hippie-beatnik-lagenlook about it.
My muslin is a happy little piece. Almost makes me want to add some more ink and make the muslin into That Tilton Dress. But such a piece is way over the top for me. Maybe.
Still trying to decide what fabric to use. Drapey hand-dyed rayon? Soft washed linen? Cotton with just a little crisp to it. I like that the pockets stand away from the body on the muslin, so no to the drapey rayon.
Maybe I should go shopping.
But. I've been trying to rein in my sewing expenditures to save up for a yet-to-be-determined sewing-related adventure. So it's best to shop the stash.
There is that light-weight burnt orange cotton corduroy. Nice jumper for fall and winter maybe. A long-sleeved shirt or T under it. Brown leggings too.
Hmmm....still dreaming. No hurry here. Just letting it perk.
Maybe I'll make a shirt instead now.
