Vintage Vogue 8767 – Dress and Jacket Toile

April 27, 2012

I’m sewing five 1930’s dresses for our theatre’s production of ‘Fallen Angels’ next month – this next one is using Vogue 8767, from their ‘Vintage Vogue’ line.   From the pattern envelope:

 

 

The finished product will be done in a beautiful red silk jacquard , with sheer red for the jabot.  I can’t wait to see how that silk drapes – it should be beautiful!  In the meantime, my toile:

 

Fairly basic construction, although the jabot facing was a little fiddly.  We’re doing this in a medium weight silk with a nice drape, so hopefully the bias facing will go in easier than the bias tape I cheated with for the toile. ;)

More photos at my blog, here!

    1. Thank you! I am really tempted to make myself one of these – it would look beautiful in a lightweight wool flannel, with a nice pair of jeans and a crisp white shirt!

  1. Do you have any photos of the finished facing on the jabot facing? I just finished my toile of this pattern and really had a rough time sorting it out. when it’s on me it looks fine and dandy, but the construction detail just looks awkward to me. I’m sure you did better than I did!
