Jae’s Version of Vogue #2890

We’ve had Vogue #2890 by Bellville Sassoon up at the workrooms a couple of times over the years, and it is always a crowd-pleaser IF you pay attention to what you are doing AND you don’t mind adapting the shape just a bit in the back of the corset and bodice.

Jae worked this up in a gunmetal grey silk chiffon for an event.  The only differences between the construction here and when Debbie Permoda made it are that Jae kept the front simple and we reduced the volume of fabric in the chiffon overlay of the skirt.
