Vogue 8998 – Floral Poplin Dress


This is my third project as part of the Minerva Makers Team. I chose to make Vogue 8998 with this beautiful cotton poplin sent to me by Minerva.

VOUGE 8998

I love a floral dress with a full skirt for summer. I added 1.5 inches to the length of the skirt. I’m 5’7″ and that’s a standard alteration for me. The weight of the fabric proved to be perfect for this style of dress.


The princess seams in the bodice are not only flattering, they offer a great opportunity for fitting. The bodice is fully interfaced and the dress fully lined.


The style of the dress combined with the floral fabric produced the feminine summer dress I was looking to create. With this dress I’m calling the summer sewing season done for 2019.


I made View D a few years ago.

  1. Oh Lucy, that dress is gorgeous! Beautiful pattern and fabric. I am going to check out that fabric company. They have wonderful material.

  2. I live in Sydney and love your wonderful sewing efforts popping into my emails. You are so inspirational in terms of your sewing
    expertise, selection of pattern to fabric and your own presentation. All three radiate beauty and care. (Your slim figure is unlike mine because I take too much care of my hunger pangs. lol) Thank you for brightening my sewing experience and day!
