Vogue 1250 - The Classic
This is my third dress made using Vogue 1250. The first one is starting to show signs of wear. It's in frequent rotation. I wear it about once every two weeks. It's so easy to throw on and go. So I needed another to replace it. This new dress was made about two weeks ago, and I've already worn it twice. These little numbers are "effortless fashion" that look good and wear well.
It took even less time (1 1/2 hours) than the first two. All sewn by machine. This is one of those dresses that you can make over and over again using different print and/or color fabrics. You can pair it with a tailored jacket or comfort cardigan, you look great.
I guess simple, summer knit dresses is becoming signature wear for me. Yeah simple knit dresses for the summer are perfect for anytime. And this is one of my favorites.
Pictured with my second cardigan (Simplicity 2424) and a broach made by my DD. I've worn this outfit to church and to work.
For this version I made a small FBA and added a center back seam.
So, if you need to beef up you summer wardrobe with a few more cute, simple knit dresses, Vogue 1250 is the perfect solution. I'm off to work!
