Description

Vogue 1136, a vintage reissue, made in rose-coloured lace! The bodice is underlined in my lining fabric, but on the skirt the lining acts as normal lining in a separately sewn skirt.

The bodice of this dress is completely as per the pattern, but I shortened and simplified the skirt (which in the original has pleats at the back and goes down to lower calf length). I was making this in a rush for a function and didn’t have time to muslin the skirt as I should have, so I think it needs a little more adjusting to be perfect – but I think it’s a pretty dress as is too!

thanks

    Thanks! I kind of had to get the shoes because they matched so well… and were on sale!
