Vogue 2960 progress

Front skirt seam needs to come in about an inch.

Waist stay and buttons still to go, not to mention hemming.

But coming along nicely.

And a lesson learned when you mark the pleats on this dress, do it on the right side of the fabric.   I marked on the wrong side and sewed them in place and when it came to sew it together, I realised I had the pleats going in the wrong direction.  It wouldnt matter on a fabric that has no ‘right side’.  Spewing.

How’s that set of vintage 50s beads.  Do they work or what ?!

  • Wonderful! And the pattern works so well with the pleats – that can be hard with a print fabric sometimes.
