New Spring 2022 Sewing Patterns for Prom Dresses- Vogue Patterns

A few days ago, I talked about Simplicity and New Look Spring 2022 sewing patterns that could be used to make prom dresses. At the time I wrote the post, there was only one other pattern company with a Spring 2022 pattern collection available for purchase: Vogue Patterns.

Vogue Pattern’s Spring 2022 collection has many patterns I like, but not as many I like as prom dresses. Some may disagree with me, but I didn’t see many patterns that would make prom dresses that are popular this year. Despite this, I wanted to write a post about the Spring 2022 patterns that could potentially make a prom dress or a prom worthy outfit for someone looking for an unique option for prom.

Before I talk about the sewing patterns, I wanted to talk about McCall’s sewing pattern rating system. Each pattern is rated based off how complicated it is to make. McCall’s rating system is different than Vogue Pattern’s, so I wanted to share the rating system according to McCall’s website.

The easiest and quickest patterns to sew. Great for beginner or the experienced sewer with limited time available. Expect limited construction details, hand sewing and fitting. Easy-to-sew fabrics are recommended.

Easy-to-sew patterns but with more details than the Very Easy category. Perfect for those with limited sewing knowledge or little time. Expect a wide variety of sewing procedures—there will be more details when the techniques are simple and fewer details when the techniques are more involved. Some fitting knowledge required.

These patterns are perfect if you have more time to sew, and more experience sewing. Look for challenging designer techniques, tailoring, unique construction details. Expect more fitting and inner construction. Find more variety in fabrics from the stretchiest knits to synthetic leathers and suedes.

The finest patterns featuring the best of European and American Couture. Perfect for those who like the sewing challenge of professional tailoring and fine couture techniques. Expect intricate fashion shaping, hidden construction details, couture inner construction, fine touches of hand sewing and bias draping.

Also, this post does not include any patterns from the Spring 2022 collection.

And now, onto the patterns!


Vogue’s website describes the pattern as…

Semi-fitted, nipped-in waist dress has shaped collar, gathered neckline, puffed sleeves, flared skirt, invisible back zipper, hook and eye back neck closure and narrow hem. View A is below mid knee and has above elbow length sleeves. View B is maxi length with a high-low hemline and has long sleeves.

The pattern is rated as Average. This dress may not look like a potential prom dress, but the unique pattern design for the body of the dress makes it a pattern to look at. If you don’t like the sleeves, the dress can be made without them.



Vogue’s website describes the pattern as…

Fitted dress has shaped contrast neck bands, side front and side back seams, three-quarter length set-in sleeves, invisible back zipper, hook and eye closure, stitched hems.

The pattern was designed by Tom & Linda Platt and is rated as Average. This pattern makes a really pretty cocktail dress, but it could be a great dress for prom as well. It uses moderate stretch knits, which makes it a really great option for anyone looking for a more comfortable dress to wear to prom.



Vogue’s website describes the pattern as…

Off-the-shoulder top, close-fitting through bust, has princess seams, asymmetric hem with side slit, stitched hems, invisible back zipper, and hook and eye closure. Wide leg pants, fitted through hips, have narrow waistband, back darts, invisible back zipper, hook and eye closure, and invisible hem.

The pattern was designed by Tom & Linda Platt and is rated as Average. This pattern is one of two formal wear patterns with pants. For this pattern, I can see someone wearing this outfit as an alternative to a prom dress. I can also see the top looking great with a skirt underneath it.




Vogue’s website describes the pattern as…

Semi-fitted, lined, below hip length jacket has notch collar, shoulder pads, princess seams, flaps, welt pockets and long two-piece sleeves with non-working vent and button trim. Semi-fitted, high rise pants have flared legs, stitched front crease, fly zipper, contour waistband with hook and bar closure.

The pattern is rated as Advanced. This pattern would be another great option for anyone who wants to wear a pants suit to prom or wants to stand out from the crowd. The pants are flared, much like they were in men’s suits in the 1970’s. This could also be a great option for anyone looking for something to wear to prom and wear other places (Such as to a job interview and to work) as well.



Vogue’s website describes the pattern as…

Lined dress has close-fitting bodice with cut-in shoulders and princess seams, asymmetrical ruffle, princess seams, left side shoulder opening with hook and eye closure, invisible side seam zipper, gathered skirt with side seam pockets, attached petticoat, baby hem, thread carriers and matching sash, length variations.

The pattern was designed by Badgley Mischka and is rated as Advanced. The dress this pattern makes would be a fun dress to wear to prom. If the ruffle on the bodice and neckline is too much, it can be left off.


That’s all for now! Thank you for reading!
