Dress #31 -- Vintage Vogue 9000 (1951 Reproduction)

And there's my vanity show for today. As for the pattern, I loved working on it. It was a little bit more involved than what I am used to, but it's good to expand your skills. There isn't a single Ooopsie hidden inside and I took my time making the pointed cuffs and hand sewing the collar (which the old me would have machine sewn and "hidden"!) No changes to the pattern were made and I fit perfectly into a size 14 right out of the package. I'm also rocking my new crinoline. I didn't realize how much of a difference it made.

With this project I learned to take my time because it pays off in the end. I am very pleased with this dress.


  1. Gorgeous! I'll have to pick this pattern up!

  2. Wow, great dress! Love the pointed cuffs, they look perfect. And gorgeously combined with the red shoes!

  3. You also did a bangin' job matching up the plaid!
