...Petunia couldn't believe it. Not only did she get to model Mr. Forquet's dress in Italy, but at a lavish dinner for eighteen at La Cisterna, one of Rome's swankiest restaurants. It was too good to be true, and it certainly hadn't made any sense. Until, that is, one of the Vogue patterns team had confided to her over dessert (and a glass or six of chianti): they had a lot of budget to use up before the end of the financial year. Petunia thought she understood: so they had money to burn, and in a hurry. She nodded, and smiled- it was a simply marvellous place, after all! Their waiter had told them all the stories about its history- about Sinatra dancing on the tables with Ava Gardner, and about high jinks in the underground caverns during the war.

Gorgeous Mod dress for Vogue Couturier designed by Federico Forquet.

Go wild with different coloured pieces of fabric, or use one colour of fabric and let those seams do the talking!

"Loose-fitting A-line dress with or without contrast has jewel neckline and front seaming detail extending to back. Without side seams. Full length sleeves or sleeveless."

Please note this pattern IS MISSING THE BACK FACING PIECE.


34" bust, 36" hip


Pattern has no date printed, but is from the 1960s.


Pattern pieces and instructions are present and correct APART FROM THE BACK FACING PIECE, which looks as if it would be straightforward to draft from the dress back.

Printed pattern pieces have been neatly cut and are in good usable condition- one tiny clean edge tear will not affect usability.

The envelope is generally in good vintage condition.
