V1250 - The Easiest Dress Ever


Vogue 1250

Pattern Description: MISSES' DRESS: Close-fitting dress.

Pattern Sizing: 6-20; I used size 14.


Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes.

Were the instructions easy to follow? A piece of cake. This pattern only had three pieces. Simple: 1, 2, 3 and it's done.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? It was easy, attractive, and sewed together in two hours. No dislikes.

Fabric Used: Jersey knit; I think rayon from the remnant room at Vogue for about $10.00.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I added two inches to the length. Instead of machine sewing the hem of the sleeves, I hand stitched them. It was easier to control the fabric. I added stitch witchery to the hem of the dress to help control the movement of the fabric as it passed through the needle path.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? YES, and YES. Carolyn is my enabler. Lol After reading her post about her third dress, I couldn't resist. My next version, I will tweak it just a little. At the small of my back it stands away from my body. I want it to lay closer to me.

Conclusion: This is a great dress that is super easy and super cute. It's sews together within two hours time. Love it.

  2. That dress looks great on you, and I LOVVVVVVVVVVE the fabric. I do have a question, because I have that pattern cut out to make next. Did you use the back facing piece to the pattern or did you just fold the fabric in and stitch the back neckline?

  3. Carolyn - It's the best. And you know I'm making it again and again. Lol

    Hey Andrea - I did use the facing. I like to extra stability along the neckline.

  8. Very pretty. It looks so cool and fresh for warm weather. Love the red dress in your last post also. The touch of animal print on the shoulder is wonderful.

  11. This is definitely a pattern that suits all comers. I recently added it to my stash for the Australian summer, but I'm thinking I might add sleeves for a winter winner.
