Vogue 9184 – Stretch Cotton Sateen Maxi Dress


This sewing project is my first collaboration with Minerva Crafts. Minerva reached out to me last month and asked me if I wanted to be part of their Minerva Makers Team. I had noticed them on Instagram and liked their fabrics. I was excited to give them a try. Minerva provided me with this beautiful stretch cotton sateen. The rest was up to me. I had Vogue 9184 in mind when I chose this fabric. I’ve made this pattern twice before in the shorter version. Blogged here.


For the maxi version I chose to only make one side slit (the pattern calls for two side slits). I find maxi dresses with 2 side slits awkward when sitting. It always feels like the front doesn’t know where to go. I also shortened the side slit by 9″. I have no issues walking in the dress with the altered slits. I lengthened the dress by 2″ and made a 1″ hem.


The pattern is unlined but just like in my two other versions, I chose to line the dress. For this project I lined the dress to the top of the side slit.

I love my dress. It’s a great addition to my summer wardrobe.


My two previous versions of this pattern. I omitted the vertical fish eye darts for the white/beige dress.

  1. Congrats on your collaboration with Minerva Crafts- your gorgeous dress really showcases their beautiful fabric. I love all of your versions!

  2. Your dress is very nice. I love long dresses, and this one is a great pattern to have. Great idea also to only have one side slit. Great job.

  3. The dress looks lovely. Very summery look. I have this pattern and was not aware that sateen would make a nice choice of fabric. I look forward to more of your creations using this fabric company.

  4. Lovely summer fabric. Also, loved your 2 previous versions of this pattern. You demonstrate such precision with your fit and pattern choices. This summer I have repeated my favourite patterns in different fabric and I am pleased with the results.

  5. Great fit as always. Great color and style on you. They are going to be very glad you are sewing with their fabric.
