Pattern Review: Vi Mode Mönster 1537
Vi Mode Mönster was a swedish pattern company. I am guessing that this pattern is from the 1970´s.
This pattern is in european sizes 34-42.
This is a vintage pattern.
I can highly recommend this pattern!
Pattern number 1537 is for two dresses, one with kimono sleeves, and one with shoulder straps. Both dresses have buttons down the front and half circle skirt. View A has got pockets, view B has bodice with darts. I have made both dresses.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow?
The instructions were quite clear, I didn´t really have any troubles with them.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I really like the construction of the skirt on this dress. It´s so unbelievably flow-y and nice! I also really like the kimono sleeves on view A, and the darts on view B.
For view A I used a madras cotton bought in Paris, for view B I used a thrifted tablecloth, a blend of cotton and linen.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I didn´t make any changes to view A. For view B, I omitted the ruffled hem.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I might just as well make this again, and if you get your hands on this pattern, be sure to snatch it up, because it has a great construction, and a thought- through design with lots of options!
A pattern I love, and have used two times already, great instructions and perfectly constructed pattern!
So pretty and summery, especially View B. I’m enjoying your pattern reviews!
Two great dresses from one pattern!. Both are lovely.
Thank you, ladies!
I echo the comments already left. The dresses both look great on you. The pattern looks so versatile, maybe an autumnal version is also needed??
Oh, I *love* the shirtdress! I’ve always wanted a plaid one myself, and the little details on the sleeves and pockets are very pretty! The other version is very cute, too, I love the big buttons!
These dresses really look like summer (which I am looking forward to!!!) The madras cotton looks perfect for view A – really gives it that retro look!
These dresses are both wonderful.I would have to make the kimono sleeve version I think for myself.
[…] Favorite Pattern: Ceylon. Or possibly Vi Mønster 1537 […]
