Pattern Review: Vogue 1155 Dress

Style Tip: Dress up this pattern with silk fabric, or dress it down with a crisp cotton.

This review was originally featured in Threads #151 (October/November 2010).

Vogue 1155

This fully interfaced and lined wrap dress is a unique take on a 1940s look. It is full of asymmetrical details, featuring wide darted shoulders, oversized lapels, an unusual peplum, and folded edges. Made from 29 pattern pieces, this dress takes a considerable amount of time to lay out and then cut out; it is not recommended for sewers in a hurry. All corresponding pieces match up well, but organizing and keeping track of the sections is key to putting it together. This dress is a very unusual design that transcends the seasons and makes a great party dress or stylish, office-friendly frock.

(Sized Misses’ 6-20 for busts 30.5-42 in. and hips 32.5-44 in.)

Style Tip: Dress up this pattern with silk fabric, or dress it down with a crisp cotton.

-Tested by Toby Barton, Winstead, Connecticut
