10th Anniversary Dress – Vintage Vogue 1172

July 1, 2015


This project is actually a couple years old, I made it for our 10th anniversary, and we just celebrated our 12th this past weekend. Better late than never, though!

This was probably my first Vogue pattern, I was a little scared but it went together fairly easily!


The next year, I decided to add the cropped jacket, partly because I wasn’t completely satisfied with how the neckline and sleeves looked on me. I definitely prefer it with the jacket!


I made both petticoats I’m wearing as well…


and was lucky enough to find this vintage hat at a store!


I was very proud of this dress, it’s fun to swish and swirl in, and the silk fabric is light as a feather.

Lots more pics and details on my blog here. 🙂

  1. Truly beautiful. I think the neckline and sleeves look wonderful on you, but it’s very flattering with the jacket as well. I love how the angular elements in the bodice work with the very soft, flowy quality of the skirt and sash. And the hat is perfect!
