Modern Interpretation of Vogue V8729

I had an awards dinner to go to recently with a dress code of ‘black tie preferred’ so decided to make a new dress. I had some silver lace in my stash that I was really keen to use, so I decided to make a version of Vintage Vogue V8729.


I thought the skirt might be a little too full blown ball gown for the evening so I elimated it & turned the bodice into a pencil dress.

I still have plans to make the skirt from Vogue V8729 but to make it as a seperate piece so that the dress is a little more versatile.

For more info & pictures check out my blog, Orchids in May.

Hi! My name is Steph, during the day I'm a mechanical engineer, but one of my favourite hobbies is sewing. I've been sewing for about 6 or so years now & I spend most of my spare time sewing. The things I enjoy making the most are probably the most frivolous things, pretty dresses & evening gowns, but there are some practical things that I enjoy making, like tailored jackets. Lately I've really been enjoying learning about vintage techniques & couture techniques, & applying them in what I make. I also keep a blog, you can find it here: orchidsinmay.com
