Brown Suiting Very Easy Vogue 8615

This is another pattern that I’m pretty sure is classified as a modern pattern, but it’s heavily vintage inspired, in my opinion, with the massive circle skirt and boat neck, it reminds me of a dress from the 50s.

I didn’t alter the pattern at all other than cut it off the fold so it didn’t have the centre seam in the bodice, it’s fully lined and is a pleasure to wear with the heavy, swishy skirt, although it’s a bit tight in the upper arm area.  I implemented a few new techniques I’d  never tried before when sewing this, including adding bodice and skirt lining, slip stitching, adding pockets and an invisible zipper.  It was a great learning experience.

It looks great with gold vintage accessories and a crinoline.

  • Great dress. There is nothing like the swish of a full skirt with a petticoat underneath!
