So I’m not quite finished with Simplicity 1104, but as I’m a little stuck and waiting for assistance, I’ve redrafted and cut V9015.
Doesn’t she look pleased as punch
Vogue 9015 is a collection of intimates, including two robe variations, and two bias-cut nightdresses, view C and D with varying length and lace placement.
While this view, C, is rather nightgown-y and sexy, I’ve shortened the length to a camisole top and I’m going to omit the lace for a more everyday look. Reading the instructions, I found that the nightgown is bias tape that merges into the straps, but I plan on using pre-bought tape and maybe doing something like this to the straps:

The fabric I used is a left over cream mystery fabric I’ve made a dress out of and had just enough for this project.
The reason for making a camisole next is because A, I’ve never sewed anything bias cut even though they make me swoon, and B, because I wanted something small to test out embroidery on.
I was inspired by an embellished moon I painted and phases of the moon.
The original sketches I did were for Simplicity 1104, so the details lines are for that, but the design will be in the same place.
For the colors, I plan on keeping with the original painting and using a pale yellow with purple accents. I plan on painting the inside of the circles to create gradation and depth, but for the line work and the dots I plan on using hand embroidery.
I’m still debating adding straps around the neckline, such as these:
Love black on black ensembles. Love the straps, if not the plunging neckline.
But it would be in white and I’d be aiming for more of a “design detail” look than sexy.
