Vintage Vogue 2902

March 10, 2012

This dress was made with Vogue 2902. A year after her wedding she was gracious enough to share and let me use a couple of her pictures. My heart always melts when I see others in the stuff I make and I’m always honored to be a small part in what is one of the most special days of a couple’s life. I did not make the sash, but I did make the petticoat.

I love the look of this pattern, but did not love all the hand sewing. I do a lot of hand sewing but I think if I ever make this again I will do things different to minimize the hand sewing.


    1. The shoulder straps on this pattern are cut in one with the band around the upper bodice and its cut twice for the front, twice for the back and the dress sandwiched between those layers. That detail is the reason the straps for my version of this dress went in the bin and it remains unfinished until I find a more satisfying way of addressing that area!

      The other hand-sewing is in the lining and waist-stay and potentially a hand picked zipper and the rolled hem of the circle skirt. In fact, there is very little machine sewing needed!
