Vintage in green

Duesseldorf, Ger...






This dress is my gift to my girlfriend who lives 9000km away from me.
Original pattern is Vogue V2903.
It is a very difficult construction. I would not recommend this pattern for beginners.
I used heavy cotton. A light cotton would not provide the desired shape of the dress.
Below is a light petticoat for everyday life.

Material Notes

heavy Cotton, Petticoat fabric




Spring, Summer, Winter
Garment Type
Evening Wear, Romantic, Vintage

    Maybe it’s heavy cotton, but on your pics the dress looks light, I love it!

    I’m glad I found this! I went to Vogue’s website and found out that all their vintage patterns are 3.88! Figured I’d share. I have a passion for the retro look. Today’s clothes are not flattering for every body type, in my opinion…

      did you sew that? or have you just the pattern?
      this pattern is good!
      It is very complicated and needs a lot of time!

      I sew a lot and like vintage fashion. Vintage is my passion. Unfortunately, my wardrobe needs not so much vintage clothing. That is why I enjoy my girl friend. If it so is wearing a dress that feels like a queen.
