Vintage Vogue


This is the result of my latest project: a dress made from a Vintage Vogue pattern (V2787). I’ve used this pattern before and since I’ve got time to get used to it I think this dress turned out better than the last one.


There is a 1940’s sew-along that I wanted to take part in: “Sew for victory” hosted by Lucky Lucille, and that encouraged me to make this dress. Well, to be honest, I bought the fabric last summer and was already determined to use this pattern together with this fabric, but sometimes you need a little push to get started…


The back of the dress – not as amazing as the front, but in this case I blame the pattern =P


The hat and shoes was borrowed from my sister, Lisa (or Lizzie J as you can read about in the post below.)

  • McKenna says:

    Wow! I LOVE it!!! Great job. I think I’ll be purchasing that pattern :) Your choice of fabric is absolutely sublime!!! Excellent!

  • Emileigh says:

    WOW! I think I agree with McKenna. I need to get this pattern. I LOVE the front! Did you find it hard to figure out? The lines and shapes of the pieces are pretty unusual. Was it tricky?

    • Miss Sophie says:

      Thank you so much! Unfortunately, this pattern is out of print by now but you can probably find it on ebay. And yes, it was a bit tricky to get the front right, but that has more to do with the diffent sizes (I can seldom use a modern pattern since my body isn’t built that way) than the pattern pieces. If you just find the pattern I’m sure you’ll be able to make this dress, and I can promise that you’re gonna love it! Good luck!
