My Vogue V1392 off the shoulder dress pattern review for Sewing World magazine.


I have been bursting to share this dress make with you since last August! I was kindly approached by Minerva Crafts who asked if I would be interested in working with them in reviewing a pattern for Sewing World magazine. Of course I jumped at the chance, and as it was such an amazing opportunity, I wanted the garment to be really special.

I chose the most beautiful dress pattern I could find, Vogue V1392, which is a Vogue pattern in collaboration with Kay Unger. It’s a stunning design and the first time I have used a Vogue pattern before!

My fabric choice was this pretty stretch brocade, I love the sage green and dusky pink colour combination.

The full review of the dress is available now in the current issue of Sewing World magazine (February issue 264), so I won’t go into details of the make here, but I can’t resist sharing a couple of pics of the make which aren’t in the magazine…

These cute little elasticated straps are hidden in the shoulder straps to stop them from slipping – so clever!
So many layers to the skirt – main fabric, organza petticoat and lining too.
Pattern matching is always challenging but worth it!

So, I think it only fair to leave it here and direct you to Sewing World magazine to read the full review, but I would love to take this opportunity to thank Sewing World for allowing me to share my thoughts with their readers and to Minerva Crafts for their generosity in supplying me with such superb supplies, they were a dream to work with.



Take care, and I’ll be back soon,
