Vogue 1378 - Denim


Vogue 1378  is a pattern that has intrigued me

I thought I would give it a try in some Mood Fabrics' soft denim (with a bit of lycra)

While constructing these, I did not think my denim had enough stretch.  After wearing these for a bit, the fabric is just fine.



These are a bit tricky to put together.  I would pull out the pattern piece, the instructions and the cut fabric.  It would take a bit of manipulating the fabric to really figure out what I was doing.  My advice is to just go slowly and keep you pattern piece handy to review the information.


I tapered the bottom more than the pattern's.  Also, my slit at the ankle is only 1", I just didn't see the need for a longer slit.

For these photographs I thought I would have unlimited options for tops.  No, not that way at all. This oversize JCrew super sale on sale t-shirt was really my only option.  With these leggings I just feel more comfortable with a longer top.  Guess I will have to make  a new top!

my hair was cut a bit too short this time, grrr, this is 10 days after the cut and my hair grows quickly. 

I read on Pattern Review, the fabric should be the same color on the front and back.  My fabric is not that way and it turned out just fine.  The seams are just overlapped, so take extra care when trimming.

Here is some close up pictures, so you can see the seam details.





With the limited stretch of my fabric, I cut out a larger size.  This might not of been necessary but wanted safe not sorry.

I probably will not make this pattern again it is very unique and one pair is probably enough.

    1. Thanks, the style lines are the interesting details on this pattern. I was indifferent after I first completed them but after wearing them for the photos, they are growing on me.

  10. You did a great job. With the seams being laid on, I would think it would skew the seams. But yours look good and doesn't show any stretching. Great job!!
