Formal dress


I made this Formal Dress two years ago for a friend’s daughter.

It is Vogue 1228 from 1975. I bought the pattern for a dollar from an Op Shop, a search on the internet¬†found it available for sale from $50.00….

Still, it is a fantastic pattern, and well worth making! Keep an eye out for it at Op Shops!





    1. Thank you – I have to admit that the fall of the skirt and the way it moved would even justify the $50 – it is probably a 1 1/3 circle skirt, cut in quarters and on the bias – and oh, gosh, just lovely!


  1. This is gorgeous! I recently bought Butterick B4919 from a discoun pattern box and ‘filed’ it for when I have occasion to make it. When I saw this post I dug out my pattern to check similarities. I really like this rounded neckline and open back!
