Vogue 8857 Part 1 - Flounce

How is everyone? Here is a quick update on Vogue 8857 tunic.

I am not making tucks for those details will most likely disappear in the busy print. So I started off with attaching flounce.

Each side has two rows of flounce. For flounce placement, be sure to mark on right side of front. (Of course, my placement line was on wrong side and this was not the first time I had done that.)

Flounce 2* was staystitched, clipped, and pinned to the front with right side together. (*Pattern Number)

After stitching flounce to front, you trim seam allowance, press the flounce and edgestitch close to the seam.

For flounce 3, you just have to baste at this time. Make sure you pin wrong side of flounce to right side of front.  

Though these flounces are somewhat lost in the print, they are pretty. I like how they look.

Well, that is all for today.

Happy sewing :)


  1. Interesting fabric. I think you made the right decision not to include the pintucks.

    1. Yep. I think pintucks are best saved for solid fabric.
