I am at my laptop trying to think of a good introduction for my review of Vogue 1250:
I mean, what new insight could I bring to a dress that has been a fan favorite on Pattern Review for sometime?
Could I talk about the simple yet flattering design, could I mention how few pieces are used, oh I know maybe how few alterations I needed to make in-order to get a good fit?
Once thing is true, this is a very good dress if your are just starting with knit fabric, actually this is the first dress I made using a knit. Oh did I mention the fabric..... that's it Ill talk about the fabric.
Ah the fabric:
Reminds me of Ladybugs! :)
The fabric was a gift from my best friend who purchased it when we went shopping at Mood Fabrics during one of our NY trips.
The first time I saw it, I caught my self saying OOH out loud, then I vaguely heard myself mumbling softly, 'wow, nice, wonderful, pretty,' as I petted the material affectionately.
Seeing how beautiful I thought the fabric was, and it being a gift from my BFF, I was paranoid not to make a mistake. I needed and wanted something goof proof LOL. That's when I decided to turn what you see above into:
As it has been stated in other PR review's, the dress is very flattering to most body types:
So that's it, my first love affair with a knit fabric, a review I should have done sooner, none the less my secret is out now.
shhh, between you and me, me like :)
Keeping myself together one stitch at a time..........
