Vogue 8870 High Low Dress!!!

I finally made a high low skirt/dress.  I have always wanted to make one, but was not sure how it would look on me.  I wanted it to be long enough to be a Maxi, but not dragging the floor as I am short.  It really came together easy, and I love it. 


Vogue 8870


Quickie Pattern Review:

Pattern:   Vogue 8870

Sizes:     14-20 -  I cut the 14 my RTW is a 10.

Directions:   Super easy and straight forward, scale of 1-10 on difficulty, I would give it a 2.

Changes:   I made no changes.  I read over the pattern before I began sewing, and  I followed the pattern to the letter.  Didn't really have to go back to the pattern after the bodice was complete.

Would I make it again:  Yes, I can see the possibilities of this pattern and would make it in the tank top version and short skirt version as well.

Happy creating.

    1. Thanks Helen, I know right. I love my dress form, I usually dress it up with whatever I'm wearing to work, just to see how it will look on. I love mine.

  5. Lovely dress. What type of fabric did you use? I'm short too (5') and am still debating if this look will suit my height.
