This is my third time sewing Vogue 8379. It is my favorite wrap dress pattern. There’s not a lot I can tell you that hasn’t been said about this pattern. To-date there are 143 reviews on PatternReview.com. It was also a Best Pattern for 2007 and 2008 as well being in the Hall of Fame in 2009.
I wanted to share this version because it was made with an interesting border print. The multi-colored stripe was located at the edge of the floral print as well as the edge of the solid part of the fabric. I used the stripe/solid combination for the sleeve and the stripe by itself for the belt. I used the stripe that was along the edge with the floral for the belt. I should have taken pictures of the fabric prior to cutting it. There’s not enough left to make out the print.
This time I made the short sleeve version and omitted the collar. I made my usual changes for this pattern:
- Added 1″ to bodice length.
- Cut the center back skirt on the fold. I removed the seam allowance in order to do so.
This will not be the last time I sew this pattern. It is a joy to sew and I love the finished dress.
