Sew: Vogue 1250

I made a new dress for the meet-up today. I cut it out early yesterday morning (I have an early riser) and sewed it up during Play School that afternoon. It took a total of about 2 hours. Seriously, this dress is quick!! I wore it today with my new Simplicity 2250 jacket, tights and boots.

Project Details
Pattern: Vogue 1250
Fabric: Remnant from Clegs
Alterations: Due to fabric limitations, I had to cut back top as two pieces and make a centreback seam. Next time, I probably need a sway back adjustment. 

The meet-up was fantastic. I would post the photos but I left my camera at the cafe. I do have a funny photo on my phone. The line up for buying fabric at Tessuti had scrum potential!

Everyone was very restrained in the fabric buying. Except me... I happened to be the first person to the remnant table. Fantastic! Want a peek in my shopping bag?

I will post the proper photos when I get my camera back. Thanks to Rachel for organising a fantastic day. Sydney next?!

  1. Looking very stylish in your new dress. Goes perfectly with your jacket. Glad you all had an awesome day. I only wish I could have joined you all.

  2. It was terrific - and I love those fabric you bought!

  3. Ah hah, I thought I spied a familiar face in the shop photo...sprung! Nothing like a good sale to start the weekend.
