DIY Mod Sweatshirt Dress

Taking inspiration from this cute and cozy Opening Ceremony sweatshirt dress, I decided to make my own interpretation using Vogue pattern V8840.  I happen to love this pattern as evidence from here here and here.  The pattern is a shirt pattern which I extended to a dress, added an awesome collar that I added two layers of interfacing to the collar to allow the structure considering this is a sweatshirt fabric. It’s so soft and comfy.

    LOVE LOVE LOVE girl it's official you are a designer rather you want to acknowledge or not. Most of us can sew a pattern, but your details that completely change the pattern are off the chain.

    Bravo!
