On assignment for Canberra's Got Style, a trip to Canberra Antiques Centre paid off in dividends. One of the gems I picked up was the Vintage Vogue dress pattern #1307, circa 1960's, designed by Jean Patou.
So, naturally, I couldn't wait to 'whip up' this smokin' hot dress!
Using fabric from my stash (from over a year ago), a grey-green suit fabric with just a little stretch (thank goodness!). I took the license to change some of the assembly instructions, but the design is as intended.
The ribbon detail is easily interchangeable with anything I fancy as the mood strikes, add a jolt of colour or a splash of red. The dress also looks awesome without the belt, I think I'm going to have fun with this one!
