Pattern Review - Vogue 1152

Ever wondered how Vogue 1152 turns out? Think you'll be sold on this pattern after seeing it here (as a top), and now Georgia's version made up in our 100% Cotton Voile Peanut Butter and Honey.

To avoid showing that much cleavage the neckline was raised by 5cm and the centre seam was eliminated (cutting it on the fold instead) and lastly, the hemline was squared off. To combat any sheerness issues with this lovely Italian voile, Georgia made an underslip in this same printed cotton to wear underneath.

A perfect Spring frock!


  1. I like this pattern now that you show it fussing with the hemline...any issues in the back could be hidden in all that pleating. I may have to try this when my sewing mojo returns!

  2. Love that fabric that Georgia made the frock out of although the colorway is not for me.

    However, the model on the pattern front looks unhealthy. Like she is about to fall over. Too thin. Let's get a little more real, Vogue. We don't look like that!!!

  3. I took a pass on buying this pattern. But I'm reconsidering. Your version is great.

  4. I have wanted this pattern ever since I saw that top version a little while ago! I need to use up some of the patterns already in my stash first though before I can buy anymore.

  5. Great idea to eliminate that center front seam, I will try that next time. Georgia's dress is gorgeous! Thank you for the nod, too.
