I know I should let this pattern go. I know I have three versions of this pattern hanging in the closet before I started this one...but I just needed one more. When I was digging around in the fabric closet and my hands touched this Anna Sui border print, it screamed that it wanted to be another version of Vogue 1250...and who am I to tell it no!
This fabric was purchased by quite a few people from Fabric Mart last summer and made into some amazing garments. It took me a minute to use mine but I think it works well with this pattern. I have no new construction tips to add to what I've previously written about this dress, here or here. This is just a great, easy-to-wear, easy-to-construct dress that works for my professional wardrobe.
However, this will probably be the last time (I hope!) that I make this dress in a knit since I've finally found a pattern in my enormous pattern collection that has the same type of neckline but uses a woven fabric. I've pulled a silk crepe from the collection and made a horrible wadder of a dress because I cut it on the bias. For the next incarnation, I will cut it on the straight grain using a printed silk crepe (also from the collection)...more about this in a future post.
Here's one final picture of the dress with a RTW knit cardigan...how I will most likely wear it!
...as always, more later!
