Vogue 1407 lining

I’m really pleased some of you loved Vogue 1407. The pattern has lining pieces with the darts included so I had a ‘what if?’ moment. Could I use the lining pieces for a simple ponte dress? Mmm.


Then I grabbed another Tessuti ponte remnant and tested the lining pieces to see what would result?

I’ve sewn in a zipper and used black fold over elastic to finish the neckline and arms.

This unlined ponte dress worked.ย 
So while the pattern has a distinct dress style to it, I’ve managed to make two dress types from the one pattern.

  1. That's a clever idea especially when you have nailed the fit, this simpler style especially you can just make over and over in different fabrics. I'm tempted to go rummaging through my pattern stash now looking at linings!

  2. Your dress looks great! I was thinking the same thing about using the lining from V1351 as its own dress, though I'd have to raise the neckline a bit.
