Vogue 1300


Hiya!  I finally finished up a dress I had started last Summer, this is Vogue 1300.  It appears to now be out of print.  It’s classified as Average, probably because you have to finish that drapey flounce with a very narrow hem.  Once you get that done, the rest is pretty easy.  There’s no hard fitting involved, no zips, no collars.  The pattern calls for side pockets, but I omitted them.



Time-consuming pressing/hemming required!








There’s no center back seam, so careful marking of your slit is needed for your loop/button closure.  This is a great little sack dress, the pattern includes a slip also (I used a RTW one).  Use a very thin fabric with a lot of drape.  This fabric came from Pacific Fabrics in Downtown Seattle.  It’s a fun little stretch poly.   It was labeled as White House Black Market, but who knows?  I’m trying to clear out a few unfinished projects to I can start on a Wrap Dress.  I joined the Sew-a-long over at McCalls.  Happy Sewing!!

  1. I love your fabric choice. And that ruffle! Great dress.
