Dear all, I'm getting married in August and can't find a dress. Problem: since I was young, I have in my mind the picture of a Vogue wedding dress, and I can't find another dress or pattern that comes close to that. All I remember are the roses made of the dresses fabric that are sewn to the back (bottom of the zipper or button line). The pattern was part of the collection about 1996 or so, of course it's not available anymore. Can anybody help with this?

Sorry I can't help you, but thought I'd suggest searching eBay or the vintage pattern dealers online...a few of them are PR members and can be found in the merchant gallery. There are some dealers w/ pretty extensive inventories.

HTH and good luck to you!
Eve

ETA: You could post a request in the "wanted" section of the PR classifieds, too.

How wonderful that you're getting married. I did a quick search on ebay and found a pattern that might be the one you had in mind:Vogue 1060, a discontinued bridal gown designed by Victor Costa with several beautiful roses on the back of the skirt.

If this isn't the right pattern, you might want to look through ebay's listing. Ebay now has over 200 discontinued Vogue bridal gown patterns in their auction and ebay stores areas. You might also want to look at Lanetz Living, a website with over 7,000 discontinued patterns. Best wishes and good luck.

I have several Vogue patterns from that time period, try to be a bit more descriptive. Florettes were very stylish then so they were seen as an adorment on many designs.

I remember seeing a picture of the back of a wedding dress that had a lot of fabric roses below the back waist of the dress. The bride is sitting and only the back of the dress is showing. The back dips nearly to the waist and is covered to the waist with sheer fabric, silk chiffon probably. The dress fabric looks like silk peau de soie. I'm not into weddings, at all, but I remember thinking that the dress in the picture was the most beautiful wedding dress imaginable and that any bride looking for the ultimate dress would fail at finding it unless she found this one. I don't know where I saw it, but it was recently. I think I have a book or magazine with that picture in it. Does my description fit the picture you saw? If it does, I'll search through all my stuff to try to get the pattern number. My memory also says that it was a Vogue pattern from the '90s.

When you said that the bride was seated and shown from the back, I knew exactly what you were looing for ~ it's a pattern for bridal accessories, including the rosettes in the photo.

Yes! That's it. I was going crazy trying to remember where I saw it. I'm not the one who wanted it though. I replied to a message by Alba71. Too bad it's not a pattern for the dress. It's only for the roses.
Thanks for posting the link.

There is a dress in BWOF 04-2005, maybe it is close: 126

Thanks for the help, and yes, it's a pattern for bridal accessoires I already have. This is indeed a gown that comes quite close to the one I remember. The skirt is very low as on the cover of the accessoire pattern, and the roses where almost the same. (That's why I had to buy, at least, this one pattern...)
The problem is: it's quite a long time since when I saw the pattern, and I do not quite well remember the other details of the gown, i.e. sleeves etc...
I already skimmed eBay and other vintage pattern sellers and didn't find exactly what I'm looking for, but I was happy to find a vintage pattern from the 50s that can easily be changed in the dress I want. Of course without sleeves and fabric part on the upper back, just the bodice and the skirt. I'm very excited now to get this pattern I ordered. I didn't think I would ever find a wedding gown that will really suit and satisfy me. (I was desperate because I tried tons of dresses at 5 different sellers and could make up my mind - now I'm happy that I will look fine on my wedding day and feel comfortable. I do not like at all the polyester fabrics they make the gowns of nowadays...)
The only problem will be to find a lovely silk fabric. I'm living near Zurich, Switzerland - can you imagine there is only ONE fabric store with reasonable prices in the whole city?

Alba, here's a Vera Wang pattern for Vogue from 1995. It's not exactly like the the one you have in mind, but it does have the same illusion neckline with neck and sleeve binding, back and sleeves cut in one, back zipper with button trim, and gathered skirt. I'm think it might be possible to modify the design, especially if you incorporated the drop waisted skirt in Vogue 2892
