The McVoguerick Tunicbiblicity dress

18 Nov The McVoguerick Tunicbiblicity dress

I don’t know what else to call it. It’s done –  it took forever – I like it……

Introducing the The McVoguerick Tunicbiblicity dress.


It was time for a new black winter dress; an all purpose dress to wear whenever and wherever.

IMG_0034 2

As mentioned in the last post I had it bad for another Oscar de la Renta RTW dress.


I love the way this dress skims the body, but I had no pattern that included all of its features,


so I gathered patterns from my stash that bore any resemblance to the dress and created a muslin.


I used Simplicity 1586 for the bodice. The bodice was similar but frankly, I was sold on the words  Amazing Fit . What a great marketing tool.


After cutting the bodice from the pattern, I measured the upper bodice length from Vogue 9047, a pattern I’ve successfully sewn twice. I cut the bodice into an upper and lower bodice at that point. I did not add a seam allowance due to my height. The seam allowance was already built in to the upper bodice, and by eliminating the seam allowance for the lower bodice, the bodice length was automatically shortened.


I tweaked the Upper and Lower Bodice pieces until achieving the fit I was seeking. Sewing an upper and lower bodice allowed me to gain a wonderful fit under the bust (shown in the lightened photo below) and in the mid-back area.


The flounce was cut from McCall’s 6988. It worked out perfectly but I was prepared to use Mary Funt’s incredible Flounce Tutorial if necessary.M6988_a

I placed the flounce four inches below my hips.


After sewing the bodice muslin I selected the sleeves from The Tunic Bible. I’ve substituted this pattern piece before in other garments.

Mood Fabrics’  Single Wool Crepe was perfect for this dress pattern.


Its pebbly surface creates a gentle texture, and the excellent drape makes it ideal for numerous garments.

The crepe also features a slight give along the crosswise grain.IMG_0011

I lined the dress with Mood’s Black China Silk/Habotai. The lightweight China Silk made for an ideal lining which was drafted from the muslin pieces.

Thank you all so much for your opinions regarding lining the flounce! I was concerned that lining the flounce would affect it’s overall drape and movement, but after learning the flounce was lined in the ODLR dress, I decided to line it, and the lightweight silk did not affect its drape or movement.


Lining the flounce also provided an easy way to hem the dress. The lining and fashion fabric were sewn right sides together, on the lower edge, flipped and then attached to the bodice. FYI – Mood’s China Silk is available in 95 colors!

After justifying how much money I saved by sewing this dress I bought the embroidered boots. It was a weak moment and a big splurge, but just so you know – I did not embroider the boots 😂


In closing, I am pleased overall with the result, but in seeking perfection, I want to sew it one more time with a few more tweaks!

If you’re wondering what to sew next – think basic black!

    I have a question for you. In each of these patterns, did they also have a lining or did you have to adjust for that as you assembled the dress?

    How do you do it??? Wasn’t it just last week you were asking readers for suggestions for the dress, including flounce and now in the blink of an eye you have produced a beautiful LBD. It goes without saying that your sewing skills are to be admired but also your organizational skills must be off the chart. Your garment is beautiful! Not to detract from your dress, however, I have to add that your monogrammed scarf looks super and the boots….I am drooling over them.

    What a great idea to line the flounce then attach it to the body of the dress – this would work with bell sleeves as well. Thank you! I will definitely be stealing this idea 🙂 Beautiful dress! I couldn’t agree with Dior more 🙂

    Sarah everything about this LBD is just so chic, I prefer the longer length sleeve you chose better then the ODLR.! It seems to balance better with the flute hemline. Ah I couldn’t get my tounge or my spelling around the name you gave the dress pattern. Ha ha x Pamela from Wales Uk.

    This is ace! And it certainly suits all lifestyles. I think this silhouette is perfect as a “power dress” as you have styled it with pumps and pearls–no nonsense but a little discrete feminine style with the flounce. And then a quick change of shoes and accessories and it’s quite relaxed and whimsical. Next Goodbye Valentino pattern, perhaps? 😉

    Just stunning! Of course, is there any thing you don’t look beautiful wearing? You are so adorable. I just assumed you embroidered the boots as you have picked up that skill quite quickly and have made some pretty garments. There is a method where you embroider a matching fabric and then glue it to the shoe/boot. Then you could also say Foodbye Kate.

    What a beautiful LBD. I am so impressed with the many patterns you used to develop the look. Maybe sometime you do a blog on the ins and outs (procedure) on how to incorporate other parts into a pattern. Love the dress. I actually have a beautiful wool crepe that I have been dieing to use. LBD is the goal for the fabric, just don’t know what style yet. I live the flounce but I don’t look good in that style…thanks so much for the inspiration.

On the next version, have you thought of a contrasting color for the flounce lining? It would give a little fun peek of color here and there. Great job lady!

      How could I have missed your comment until now???? Oh….the holidays, that’s how. Thank you, Nita for the link to the video. She’s wearing quite a tunic, indeed!
