You Can’t, You Won’t, And You Don’t Stop: 8728

Vogue 8728 in Liberty

Those of you who asked for more: here you go. Those of you rolling your eyes and thinking "How many of these Vogue 8728s can she MAKE?" should brace yourselves; this is not the last by a long shot …

I wore this in a colder-weather place pretty successfully (I think) over a thin longsleeved black t-shirt and black tights, under a longer sweater. That much layering made me feel just a little too Lucky Mag, but hey, I managed to avoid carrying a completely impractical handbag and wearing eight different necklaces, so perhaps I dodged that particular bullet.  

On to more pictures!

Oh, this is Liberty fabric, too, part of the haul I purchased back in May at Shaukat. I deliberately limited myself to darker colors while there; I usually buy all brights and then feel weird wearing them in November. Soon I will have a whole slew of Novembery dresses! (Your hemisphere may vary.)

I do have a non-8728 dress to post, that will come later this week!

Love this iteration. Ok, I am completely obsessed with this pattern now too. I have to make it. D cups be damned!

Okay, you’ve almost got me at the tipping point with this pattern, but could we see how you style it (not necessarily Lucky-style), for those of us in more northerly-latitudes? Otherwise, I’m just gonna have to wait until summer to make it. Thank you for helping those of us who need more visual representation.

Love the print love the colors Love the dress
Not going to make one for me — I’m too busty for this pattern.

This is such a lovely print and I love the
pattern and this would definitely work in
colder climates with a long-sleeved black
t-shirt and tights.

Sarajane, a friend took some pictures of me Saturday night wearing it layered-up style … I’ll see if any of them are any good. :-)

I always have a hard time matching pattern and fabric, so am loving your different fabric iterations of the same dress. Looking forward to seeing more!

I may have to change my mind about Liberty of London fabrics. So often I see the small images on vendor sites and think “Huh. What do so many others see in these fabrics that I don’t?”. Seeing these last 2 fabrics/dresses made up, I like these.

You convinced me; I bought the pattern and I will make the dress, too. Love from a Dutch girl!!

Lurker here… this one is totally my favorite of the ‘series’- the material is gorgeous and suits the dress.

I literally snorted my mint tea OUT MY NOSE at the Lucky Mag comment. Too true!

And I say, if you find a look that works, work it. I love this dress in all its versions!

Erin I’m coming to see you when you come to Australia and I’m so curious as to which of these dresses you will wear!

Beautiful fabric. Another multi-season dress. I have a few patterns that I use over and over again so I understand.

This is my favorite! (Or maybe it’s “First Prize.”) I’d love to see them styled your way, too.

This is my favorite, too.

Lovely! I have this pattern and have been itching to start it – I’m so excited to see that it is spoken so highly of! All of your 8728 dresses are fantastic!
