VOGUE 1952 | WRAP DRESS
This is the vision I had when I purchased Vogue 1952 to sew a Wrap Front Dress. I was immediately drawn to View A. This is definitely my style and, like View B Here, I plan to get a lot of wear from this dress. I LOVE it so much, and can’t wait to wear it to a special event.
Since I already wrote a BLOG POST about this pattern, and posted a PATTERN REVIEW on my YouTube channel, I will direct you to those posts for more information. However, I will say that Vogue 1952 is a really great pattern. If you’re interested in sewing the dress with me, there’s a SEW ALONG VIDEO on my YouTube channel. I’m walking you through the entire process, with lots of details. If you have basic sewing skills, you should be able to follow along and complete the dress.
***VOGUE PATTERNS ARE ON SALE RIGHT NOW (SEPTEMBER 28TH - 30TH)***
Update: I think the sale may be in-store only for their Doorbuster Event because the $5.99 price isn’t reflected on the website.
Here are a few detail shots of the dress.
Here’s what it looks like when the ties are wrapped to the back of the dress and tied in a bow.
This fabric is exactly what I was looking for to make the dress. I wanted a bold print with vibrant colors. And this Metallic Knit Jacquard is all of that and more. I love everything about it. The first thing I did when I brought it home was wrap it around my body to see if it would be itchy against my skin. Hahaha! I wasn’t planning on adding a lining, so if it was itchy, I would have changed plans. I’m happy to report that it doesn’t feel itchy at all (at least not to me).
Since I don’t cover inserting the sleeve with cuff in the Sew Along, I’ve provided a few photos to show you what it should look like during construction. Follow the instructions in the pattern envelope to create the cuff. This first photo is what the pattern piece looks like when cut.
The next photo is what it looks like after folding in half to sew seams for split in cuff.
This is how the ends should be sewn together.
This is the result after sewing the seams on each end for the split.
After folding and sewing ends together, and basting raw edge, this is what you should have.
Finally, this is what the cuff looks like when attached to the sleeve.
See what the split in cuff looks like on my arm below.
I styled the dress with a rhinestone necklace and earrings, a pair of silver, open toe pumps with rhinestone detail, and a bling clutch purse. Did I say I love this dress?
How would you wear the garment?
