Retro Deep V-Kimono Dress + Vogue 9253 Pattern Review

picture_20170611_132131980

I’m so in love with this dress that I almost can’t stand it!! When I saw this Vogue pattern, I immediately knew that I was going to make it using this amazing retro fabric that I purchased from Craftsy.com back in January. I was drawn to this pattern style because it’s first and foremost a maxi dress, but also the plunging neckline was very appealing. Thankfully, I’m small up top so that having a wardrobe malfunction wouldn’t be likely-especially using double sided tape! I’ve attached several photos below so I hope you like my version of this pattern as much as I do. You can purchase my sunnies HERE and I’ve also attached a pattern review below. Happy Monday!
