Vogue 2050, Calvin Klein Coctail Dress

Added Apr 21, 2010

Stockholm, Sweden






Coctail dress made with Calvin Klein Vogue American Designers 2051, one of a lot of patterns I got on E-bay a few months ago. Copyright 1988. I think I’m really beginning to like the 80’s again (though not all of it).

I only made a few changes, I shortened it a bit (ehum, happens every time I sew a skirt or dress) and removed some width around the back and skirt to make it fit me better.

There’s a boned foundation with a waist stay that makes it stay in place and very comfortable to wear.

More information at my blog.

Material Notes

Polyester (?), cotton (for the foundation), zipper, grosgrain ribbon for waist stay and boning-casing, polyester boning.




Garment Type
Cotton, Polyester

    Oh I really do love it! And I’m getting into the 80’s again too! There are some really good styles that I hadn’t realized when I was younger because I was so overpowered by the bad ones. Lovely job! Superb color!

    Maybe I should be tempted to shorten dresses or skirts, too, if I had your legs…; ) Wonderful job, and yes, the colour is perfect.

    This is absolutely beautiful! So nice to find a pattern with all those high end finishing off details, like waist stays. You’ve done a beautiful job. And I love the colour!! ;D
