Madam Gres Vogue Paris Original from 1957

Daughter has a University Winter Ball to go to….so I have decided to try and make Vogue 1386 for her….

1957 (1)

The first mock up from this pattern is from calico, just to see if I could even get it together (these pattern pieces are amazingly complex – it is like a jigsaw puzzle crossed with origami!)


So far – so good – now I just have to work out the fitting issues for the next mock up, hopefully in some cheap satin to see if it works…and then maybe the final garment will be in velvet……
