Pattern review Vogue V8815...Floral Birthday party

No...it's definitely not my birthday but this floral fabric I have here definitely makes me feel like a Springtime Birthday party ad!

L-O-V-E-D this pattern.  I mean it was an absofrigginlute DREAM to sew (even WITH the bias binding---dreaded addition that it is).  Easy to read, easy to sew.  For the first time EVER in the history of my Amazon sewing days, I sewed this bad boy straight out the box (so you KNOW 3 more are getting made).  It's such a figure flatterer how can one go wrong???

 I twiddled with the lighting on this one a bit...gotta love pic monkey. :)

Again...love this top (but boy do I hate putting in zippers...meh). :)


Top: Floral Cotton (floral ribbon print); black bias binding (single fold)
Jeans: Seven (believe it or not they're allegedly "full length jeans" hmph!)
Sandals:  Avenue Cloudwalker wedges
Hat: DIY (it's amazing how much I can get done on the train...)



  1. Cute top! I love the printed fabric!

    1. Thanks Erica! I hope I don't play this pattern out but it's so easy to sew and wear (I have 3 sets of fabric in queue lol...going to force myself to complete some other projects first)!
