Red Circle Dress

Added Apr 23, 2013

by Tallulah Twirl

Manchester, Unit...






Vintage Vogue 1084. ‘The Dress went together amiably enough, masses of fabric making it feel luxuriant. I had pictures of wondrous swirling skirtage in my head, and dreams of ballrooms. But issues became evident. By fault (clearly not of my making, The Dress made me do it), or oddly-drafted pattern design, the top was determined to be way too large. And I do mean hugely too large. Massive, in fact.’

Material Notes

Some kind of soft, heavyish cotton-based stuff. Printed with blood.

    very nice dress, I also want to sew this one in the next time. I always make first a muslin, to avoid such fitting problems, especially with Vogue patterns, because they vary very strongly – I have somtimes 6 and somtimes 12! depending on the model.
