Le Rouge et le Noir

Vintage Vogue 1172, a repro pattern from 1957. I love the V-neck bodice with the princess seams and the flared skirt: there are 4 godets making it a more-than-full-circle skirt. It does require quite a lot of fabric but by making it shorter, I found out I could use “only” 3 meters.
Check out my blog for more info.

    This is amazing! I actually bought a similar fabric in Barcelona this summer – can’t wait to start sewing! And full circle skirt with 3 m is well done (and good to know!). Great photos also!

      Thank you. I think I even manage to have quite a lot of fabric left considering the pattern. Again, I cut it some 10 or 15 cm shorter…
