Vintage Vogue 2787

July 29, 2013

 

 

This is a Vintage Vogue reprint of a 1948 pattern. I love asymmetry, so the S-curve down the front and the gathers made me very happy. The shoulder pads did not. If you’re interested, there is more on the shoulder pad adventure on my blog. I had a truly strange rolled spaceman sleeve going for a while.
This pattern is simple and easy to sew. I went the extra mile and made the button and loop back closure instead of using a 7 inch zipper. There is also a side zipper so that it is possible for person to actually get into the dress.

The gathers make this dress rather forgiving in the midsection—always a plus. One of the things I really love about this dress is that the style and the fabric justify the silver shoes I impulse bought last summer. Finally! If you’d like to read more, please check out my blog.

  1. This dress looks great! I tried to make it myself last year but it didn’t work for me at all. And its details are so lovely. As you said, that S-curve with the gathers on it…
    Did you go with the shoulder pads in the end (it doesn’t look like your dress has shoulder pads now)
