1969 Vogue Laroche

Added Mar 15, 2012

Zurich, Switzerland






I made this dress from a vintage pattern found at Etsy, a 1969 Vogue “Paris Original” Guy Laroche design. I had to downgrade it but just a little bit, and everything went quickly and well throughout garment construction. The only modifications I made were the zipper up the whole back (the original is open at the back), and adding a full lining.
Only thing missing is a hat like on the pattern envelope!

    Oh, dear. My comment was eaten.

    Oh, well…basically it said I was overjoyed to find your photo spread of this pattern since I am in the process of making a wearable toile (from wool twill and poly underlining) of this exact Vogue Paris Original. I find the pattern, while exquisite, has very little in the way of really showing what the final product will look like, so THANK YOU! I love your version.

    I think I may try a zip up the full back, but I am on the fence. Hmm…

    I will make sure to link to your review when I finally get my photos uploaded to the site. :)

    Just perfect! Beautiful cut, great fabric and so well made! It looks much better than dresses on pattern envelope.
