VOGUE 1952 | WRAP DRESS

WRAP FRONT 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.

PATTERN INFORMATION

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.

Fabric Options

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).

Sleeve Insertion

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.

Styling Options

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?

    Hi Anita,
    Thank you for the blog about the pattern. I appreciate the “in close” photos and the variation of tying the dress in the back.
    I tried the link for the project checklist, and the link is not working at this moment.
    Take Care,
    Anita

    Nice fabric and the dress turned out beautiful. Thanks for the close ups of the fabric.

  4. Gwendolyn S.

    Hi Anita! When you first showed this fabric I didn’t think I would like it. It turned out to be beautiful!

  5. De

    This is such a classy look! The fabric choice is ideal and I can see this dress in my fall wardrobe. Thanks for the heads up about Vogue patterns, too. I dashed to JoAnn this morning to purchase one before the drawer was depleted. Did you have to put a snap on the front of the skirt so it won’t fly open or will it drape sufficiently? Thanks, Anita, for another sewing win!!

  6. Cindy Davis

    I love the fabric you chose for the dress. You did a beautiful job of sewing it and showing how to do it.
    Love watching your YouTube channel as well. Keep up the amazing work you do.

    Ohhhhh Anita!!! I love this dress. I can’t wait until I get started on it. I’m still learning to sew, but I’m holding on to this being a “beginner friendly”… can’t wait. It looks great on you to. Thank you for sharing and posting.

      Hi Gwendolyn! I’m glad you appreciate the photos.

    HI Anita!
    Once again, absolutely beautiful job sewing this fabulous dress! I’ve seen that fabric at Joann’s but would have never chosen it for anything but it looks great!
    Just for clarification, you must be referring to Joann’s Pattern sale when you mentioned the pattern is on sale, is this correct?
    Thanks for sharing your talents ,
    Sew On,
    Little Stitchy 🙂

    This is exactly the view and style I am going to make. The shoes are perfect. This is fabulous Anita. I am concerned about the V NECKLINE. It looks perfect on you. I’m afraid it may be too deep for me. Did you do any adjustments to bring the V cross over up?

    1. Anita Morris

      Hi Carmen! I didn’t make any pattern adjustments. I would advise you to make a muslin of the bodice first to check for fit.

  13. Gaynell

    Good morning. What a beautiful dress! You wear it well. Thanks for letting me know about Vogue patterns being on sale.
