Do you remember Grace Coddington’s Amish editorial? From late summer, 1993, “The Great Plain” looks forward to Schitt’s Creek and today’s back-to-the-land trend. It also features two Vogue Sport dress patterns.
The Vogue team travelled to rural Pennsylvania for the shoot. In the opening spread and barnyard square-dancing sequence, Christy Turlington wears simple dresses, made up in cotton broadcloth from Sutter Textiles.
One thought on “Patterns in Vogue: The Great Plain”
I remember this Vogue Magazine spread, and the dresses at that time certainly had this type of feel and design esthetic. It certainly could be an easy style to wear, and I did have a few versions of such a dress. Now, I wish there was a pattern for that Jil Sander’s coat! Now that’s a classic, to be sure!
