Photos of the Vogue dress

This is the side view of my dress. This is not a great photo, the dress and fabric are much nicer than it appears in this shot. There is a pin in the dart where I needed to shortened the dart length and the pin marks where it should end. After inserting the sleeve and basting the facings down, I tried on the dress and the bust dart ended right at the bust. It really needs to be about an inch away. This change was made and dart needs to be re-pressed.

This is the back of the dress. I ended up taking a deeper dart in the upper part of the back. It was a little too full there. I have narrow back from shoulder blades down to waist. I did make a swayback adjustment before cutting out the pattern. The back was cut on the fold.

The shoulder line of this dress is unique. I describe it as a quasi-raglan sleeve. The end of the shoulder stops about midway of your shoulder.

The sleeve as I have noted before is two pieces. This is the top seam of the sleeve. The cuff is a cut-on cuff. You can see it turned up here.

Life once again intersected my sewing plans today so dress unfortunately is not complete. I am very pleased with the fit after making the above noted adjustments. The fabric was really nice to sew and I think will wear well.


  1. Beautiful! And very smart too. Love the unusual sleeve and the cuff.

  2. This is looking sooooo goood and making me want to pull out my pattern and work on it!

  3. Really neat, I like the cuff and semi-raglan sleeve.
