Vogue 2759 – vintage pattern pirates


A random fabric and brown paper pattern package among some of Nana Shirley’s fabrics…


Nana had a copy of her friend Wynn’s four gore skirt, Vogue 2759. A four gore skirt is a classic for the wardrobe, I had to make it up, right?


The pattern does not include seam allowances, however, the fabric was cut with almost a generous 2 cm allowance, it had already started to fray so I decided to try out French seams. At the time I was in an ‘experimental seam phase’…. and wanted to give them a go. They worked quite well, the fabric was lightweight enough for them to sit well.


How did it sew up? Perfect!

This is probably as close as I get to a nautical look…

Slightly bubbly hem! Needs a bit more pressing after all…..

Otherwise, perfect! I do like the idea of my nana and her friends sharing and copying each others sewing patterns. I’m thinking of making a corduroy version for winter, such a wearable style, I love it! Thanks Nana and Wynn.
