Sometimes two is better than one: Vogue 8738

Y’all know I love one pieces, dresses are my go to and jumpsuits aren’t far behind, but I’m starting to warm up to separates. Sometimes they really do make more sense, like with this busy snakeskin print double brushed. It’s a fun look all together, but separates will get more wear. Read all about this make over in my post on Fabric Mart Fabricista Blog as well as see the the other ways I styled each piece. Scroll down for my pattern review.

Does it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope? Yes

Were the instructions easy to follow?  Yes

Likes: Quick sew, separates that look like a one piece.

Dislikes:  The lack of finished measurements on the pattern. The raw finish on the back yoke is weird.

Pattern alterations or any design changes made:  I finished the entire armhole with a narrow hem.

Would I sew it again?  Yes, but I would sew a 16 if is I use a very stretchy knit like a DBP.

Would I recommend it to others?  Yes, it’s OOP but if you run across it, its a fun pattern.

Conclusion:  Cute set that looks like a one piece.
