Vogue 2960 progress

in Vintage Sewing

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 ?!

Your dress looks fabulous! Hope you post again when it's all done. BTW, is that a Californian Bungalow?

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