Vogue V9278 Pattern Review

Hello sewist,

I love slip dress. Being a short person, I find slip dress enchances the natural curves of my body. The best of all, it fits in all occasions. For casual, just wear a t-shirt underneath, looks cute!

As I’m a beginner and I don’t know how to look at pattern yet, I bought the wrong size for myself. Ugh.


My first project is a pair of lounge pants. I got help from my mother in law that is how I finished my first sewing project. It is really easy, exactly like the front of the envolope.I did all the rookie mistakes. I used seam ripper, and undo about 5 times with the same seam. I learned from my mistake after a million times, because one time is not enough. 


What I learned so far:

  • Always sew seams to seam!
  • Sew using 5/8 inch on sewing machine unless state otherwise.
  • To turn a spaghetti strap, sew long yarn inside and pull it inside out.

The instructions are really clear and easy to understand. I just got the wrong size for myself and that caused me to do several major alterations.

Changes I made with this pattern:

  • Shorten the waist by 1 inch.
  • Shorten the dress to above my knees
  • I skipped the zipper. I do not like how my thread shown on the fabric.

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Recommended. I will do it again but maybe, getting the right size first.
