red dress

Vintage Vouge 2787

I was very excited to make this dress. Its ironic that the 1940s is one of my favorite eras and I haven’t successfully made an authentic forties dress before this one.

I used vintage vouge 2787. I love the S-shape on the front! That was what originally drew me to this pattern. The pattern was straightforward and I didn’t have any real problems, it did however, challenge me with sewing even curved lines. The gathering on the shoulder was modified and I had to pettite-ify the top half of the dress. The dress seems to fit the kind of girl who has a full bust but a small waist and moderate hip.
