Vogue 1250 Pictures

I received so many wonderful compliments on the gown I made last week using Vogue 1250. What I didn't tell you was that it was one of those hot off the press numbers, you know, make it in the morning and wear it that night!!!! Sadly, I was very busy that evening, so I didn't get pictures taken, but I did put the dress back on this morning and took a few pictures so you can see how it looks on the body.
In the pictures below, you get just a glimpse of the shoes.

 And now for a little preview, I was asked about adding sleeves to the pattern, and I did!!!
It really isn't difficult to do, just a bit tricky. Our next post will be a tutorial on adding the sleeves. YEA!!! So if you haven't purchased the pattern yet, you'll really need to now :)
By the way, I made a mistake last week when I said that the pattern is out of print. The good news is that it is very much available. If you would like to order one for yourself, you can find it HERE.

  1. This dress is stunning and you look fabulous in it. It is a real red carpet frock. I like the top too. It looks very different with sleeves and in that fabric. What a versatile pattern. Xx

  3. Oh wow, will be trying this one. I'll be interested to see what you did at the back with the curved waist seam. When I made a top (without sleeves) I kept the seam and made a bit of a peplum out of it. It is a wonderful and easy pattern and your dress is just stunning on you.

  6. Great look! I've loved V1250 from a distance but prefer sleeves, so I'll be watching. Since it is only 2 pattern pieces, is it user friendly for upsizing?

  8. Gorgeous dress and fabric Rhonda! I made this pattern before but with the wrong fabric. I've been wanting to make a maxi version!

  10. That's the wonderful thing about sewing. Make it and wear it the same day. I've done that so many times.

  11. I love both looks! The long dress is gorgeous, worthy of a special event. I actually have this pattern in my stash but haven't made it because of the sleeve issue. I'll be watching for the tutorial as it looks great with sleeves too.

  14. This is just gorgeous. Extremely flattering to you, and I love the shimmer. It looks like high fashion to me! Thanks for the tip on this pattern, too -- looking forward to that sleeve tutorial.

  15. Thoroughly gorgeous, tres elegant. Adding the sleeves changes the character entirely and makes a brilliant t-shirt. I will probably buy this having seen that now
