Continuing with the theme of easy makes this week, is vogue 1250, a DKNY pattern.
I LOVE this dress.
It is a cowl neck pattern, but I decided, because I am crazy like that, to wear it off my shoulders. I have been looking for an off the shoulder pattern, but I have not been able to find one….yet…so in the meantime, I shall wear this dress like this.
A dodgy picture……
|Don’t know what was going in with my face here|
When pairing it with the jacket, I decided to wear it with the cowl out as it was designed to be.
And for the stats
Pattern Used: Vogue 1250
Pattern Sizing: I made a size 14 for the top, then tapered out to 16 from the waist down.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? I think so
Were the instructions easy to follow? Pretty much.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? The instructions for the binding at the back of the neck were a bit fiddly I think
Fabric Used: Cotton jersey from Walthamstow market. £2/metre
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I added about 2 inches to the cowl to deepen it.
Would you sew it again? Definitely. In black for a LBD, and then some jewel tone colour.
Would you recommend it to others? For shizzle. If you don’t have this pattern, buy it NOW.
