Vogue Vintage 2787! It’s wasn’t that bad, though it irks me that Vogue Patterns are big fat liars. The dress ended up being two sizes too large and I had to take it in a fair amount at the seams. It took a lot of tweaking especially after I opted out of adding shoulder pads, that was a very time consuming adjustment, making the neckline larger and fitting new facing to fit the adjustment. I think it’s a fantastic dress and so worth all the time spent on alterations! I’m so pleased how it came out! I would love to make it again (cutting a size smaller) in a solid color like black (fake) linen, my favorite!
Fabric of questionable dating. Bought it from someone who said it was from the 1970s, but it has nothing to do with that time period! It’s either a repro from 1970s or the 1940-ish and is missed dated. Bought for $15.
