Vogue V8280

I've been working on version B of V8280.
It is almost finished, I still have to attach the lining to the zipper inside. I like the armhole:
The fabric is a printed linen. Very nice to work with.
As for the pattern, it is completely different from what I use to sew. Usually, I go for easy pieces, that just require one day to complete. This one is marked Easy by Vogue, and that is true, but since it has much more construction, I was a bit out of my comfort zone. But I enjoyed sewing it.
Now I have to find shoes and maybe a belt (I have enough leftover to make one too, this could be the easy option).
Have a nice week all!
PS: I've just found your messages on my last post. Thanks for them.
I have lost weight, 1/5 of my initial weight in fact, since last Eastern, hence the need/longing for new garnments. And for fun garnments. And on how I see myself now. I have altered the pattern because my waist is too thick compared my bust and hips, but at the end, the top came out a bit too big :-) I had to resew the zipper with more seam allowance :-)

1/5 c'est beaucoup! Attention à ne pas être obligée de retoucher toute ta garde robe :-)!Elle est sympa cette robe, j'imagine bien une ceinture noire avec une boucle orangée...

Le décolleté doit faire beaucoup d'effet; et quant à mettre ça dans la catégorie "easy", ils ne craignent rien! qu'est-ce que ça doit être, les modèles difficiles. Bravo, en tout cas.
