Vogue 8847... With Leather Details

This is one of my favorite patterns sewn in recent time. I got the pattern when it was newly released but didn't have the motivation or the right fabric for the style until recently.  The wait really worth it as I love everything about this dress, my fabric choice and the leather detail.

Fabric: I used combination of faux leather and rayon-poly,  this fabric frayed so badly. I had to serge the pieces before sewing
Pattern Description: Very loose fitting, pullover dress has collar, self-lined yokes, side pockets, sleeves with barrel cuffs, and belt.
Pattern Sizing:  8 to 16, I cut size 14 then graded to 16  at just below the waist .
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?:   Were the instructions easy to follow: The instructions were easy for most part until  got confused at institution 11, I didn't follow the instruction at that point, just did my own thing
 I sewed and  joined pattern pieces 3 (Front yoke and it's facing ) to the front, also sewed and joined pattern pieces 5 (Back yoke and it's facing) to the back. Finally sewed both back and front together at the yokes.
 Pattern Alterations or any design changes you made:  I lengthened the bodice by 1",  the hem by 1.5" also  lengthened the sleeve by 2"
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I love the leather detail on the shoulder and the collar , nothing to dislike
Conclusion: I love everything about this dress... it is my kind of  dress style..

Thanks for stopping by, and have a lovely week ahead......
