Recently Catherine reviewed this dress saying that she was probably the last person to make this, well...now I'm the last!
I was hesitating to make this one because the pattern pieces were oddly shaped and I knew that I needed to add at the hip. Below you can see how I did it.
It wasn't difficult, I traced the shape of the dart and then placed the tracing under the tissue paper to retrace at the spot where it would give me the extra ease I needed at the side. I really like how the dress turned out, I hope to make more. What made me decide to go for it? At NYC PR weekend, I was able to try on the dress since Karen had made it; even though it was tight around the hips, I really liked how the bodice looked.
The fabric is a rayon knit that I loved on Carolyn and ordered right away. From her post I can see I aged it a bit ;-)
Vogue 1250 has been made many many times, so I wont reviewed it over at PR since I have really nothing earth shattering to add.
I braved going outside in 90 degree weather and killer mosquitoes so I wore the dress with sandals. I'm looking forward to wearing it in the fall with fall appropriate shoes/accessories. If you haven't made it go for it, really I think it looks better in person than in pictures!
