VOGUE 1933 | A-LINE SHIRTDRESS
When I first saw Vogue 1933, I was drawn to View A because I was looking for a long shirt pattern. But I have to admit the sleeve detail was pretty interesting too. I wasn’t too sure about the open sleeve and long cuff, but decided to give it a try anyway. If anything, I thought it would be a fun challenge to see how I would wear the sleeves.
Choosing a dress pattern for a shirt gave me that oversized look that I wanted. I wore it today with a pair of leggings and clogs. It was so comfortable. I will definitely get lots of wear from this garment
I won’t get into the details of the pattern because I’ve created a Pattern Review video on my YouTube channel. The video is very detailed and it’s in preparation for a Sew Along that’s coming soon. Here’s a picture of the pattern envelope. You can check out the PATTERN REVIEW for all the details.
STYLING WITH LEGGINGS
I’m very happy with the fit of this shirt because it looks so good with my leggings. I tried it with my skinny jeans and it looks great. I also think it would look good with a below-the-knee pencil skirt and a belt around the shirt for a work outfit. Hmmm… Oh, I envision that looking really pretty.
STYLED AS A DRESS WITH CLOSED SLEEVES
If I were to wear it as a dress, I like the sleeves closed and cuffs rolled up. But I would probably lengthen it a bit for my comfort. I wouldn’t want the wind to take the lightweight fabric to places it doesn’t belong. Hahaha!
STYLED AS A DRESS WITH OPEN SLEEVES
While this is a stylish look, I can’t see myself wearing it with the sleeves open. It mimics a cape dress but the sleeves don’t really do it for me. So, I just wanted to take photos to show you what it looks like with open sleeves.
Inside the Garment
I used my Baby Lock Soprano to sew all the seams, and Baby Lock Vibrant Serger to finish off the seam allowances. The inside of the garment looks clean and polished.
I made a muslin before sewing the dress and it was a great fit, with no alterations.
