Vogue 8767

April 24, 2013

This morning I finished Vogue 8767, a 30s reproduction pattern, and I wanted to share the result with you!

I was really in need of a new spring dress, and I think this dress is perfect. I love the jabot, belt and puffed sleeves!

The construction of this dress went so smoothly, I even got a bit scared 😛

I didn’t make any alterations to the pattern and this time I didn’t make a muslin.

The dress has a lapped hand picked zipper in the sideseam.

I did practice hand picked zippers during sewing course last year, but didn’t do the real thing until now!

It always feels good if you master a new sewing skill and when a project goes so well!

There’s more on my blog 🙂

  1. Oh, Anthea, what a nicely-made dress. You’ve fitted it beautifully and everything hangs just right. Is the jabot detachable? I love the patterns which show a variety of accessories for a basic dress, so versatile.
    You have styled your dress so well, your hair looks authentic, and so do the shoes. Well done!

    1. Thank you so much! The jabot is sewn onto de bodice. The shoes are one of my favourites! I bought them years ago at H&M, they go so well with vintage and retro outfits.

  2. Thank you for sharing! It’s a beautiful dress. I have been thinking of making this same dress for Spring too and it’s nice to see a finished one and how it came out. What type of fabric did you use?

    1. Love to see your version of the dress! I used a 100 % cotton fabric. The instructions don’t suggest cotton, but I think that cotton is very suitable.

      1. Thank you Anthea! I was hoping is was cotton because that is what I wanted to use, but the pattern didn’t suggest it. There are so many wonderful prints out there and it’s hard to find an era appropriate print in other fabrics. I hope mine turns out as well as yours!

  3. This is a pretty 30s type frock. I love the front detail. You’re vintage hairstyle and shoes go perfectly with the dress.
