Pattern Review - Vogue 2899

Here's another pattern review from one of our interstate customers from Adelaide. Lisa sent me through these images of her dress made up for a special birthday (don't worry Lisa won't give your age away!) made up in one of our jerseys in Guy Laroche pattern Vogue 2899.

I asked Lisa about whether any alterations were made to the pattern or if there were any fitting issues?

"Dress made per the pattern, no muslin. Alterations were to make size 12 top half and halfway between 12 and 14 bottom half - very easy to achieve straight from the pattern."

Fabric used?

"Tall Eggplant - Viscose/Spandex jersey"
( indeed it is tall ...this fabric is 182cm wide!!!)

Lisa was thrilled with our service and wanted to add:
"I requested samples of fabric via phone, which I received within 2 or 3 days (and which included quite a variety of samples, much to my surprise and delight). I thought that was fabulous service – and then when I ordered the fabric itself via phone, I received it the very next day by express post!!"

Isn't this a fabulous dress pattern for evening wear or a special occassion? Lisa, you created a stunning dress and look absolutely gorgeous in this ...happy belated birthday!


  1. This looks amazing! This dress has been on my "could I pull that off?" list since I saw Erica B's version.

  2. The eggplant color is delightfully different. I love it!

  3. Tessuti's service is wonderful, isn't it? I ordered two copies of Pattern Magic 1 (in English!) on Saturday and they arrived at my place before 9am on Monday. Wow!

    And the dress looks great. :-)

  4. What a beautiful dress ! I love the neckline.

  5. Lovely work - stunning dress in the perfect fabric!
