Vintage Vogue 2787
Where to start? This dress is just so super vintage gorgeousness from top to bottom! The curved bodice/skirt seam is really flattering and gathering at the shoulders and waist give it a unique look.
I made this dress for a Mother of the Groom client who fell in love with the pattern and an amazing colourful chiffon but was a little nervous about sewing it herself (with good reason!).

The neckline is REALLY high, for this dress I lowered it by two inches at the front and an inch at the back. The pattern calls for a back zip as well as a side zip, but I omitted the side zip and added a longer invisible zip.
I also underlined the whole dress with a pink silk as the chiffon was too sheer to work on its own.
Would you sew it again? And tell others to?
Sewing this dress in chiffon is definitely not for the faint hearted that’s for sure! While sewing it I did often wonder how it would look in a thicker fabric or even a cotton and I think it would work well. I love the different drafting techniques and even the curved bodice seam (which is topstitched!) wasn’t too hard to get finished to a standard I was happy with.
Wrap it up!
I really love this pattern – it is a really different style that has a true vintage class to it.
Made in different fabrics it could have totally different feels/looks to it and I think it’s a great pattern that you could potentially make again and again!
