Vogue Vintage V2960

in 1950s

This is my second version of this 50′s pattern.I really love the shape of the bodice, the naked back, and all these gorgeous hollow pleats!

My first version was in a printed cotton and metal buttons. I made it for the wedding of my best friend. (Seen here). I wanted a new version easier to wear in every-day life, and correct the few problems with the first version.

I cut it in June and only sew it this September!

I made it with denim-color linen, lined on the bodice with a blue cotton. There were some plastic button.

Sorry it is in French, but if you have any question I can answer in English ;)

Both of your dresses from this pattern are lovely. I’ve made this pattern myself a few years ago, but in silk and lace as my best friends wedding dress. I’ve often thought I should make it again in a more everyday fabric, and you have just inspired me to think about it again.

Looks like a lovely wearable dress!
