Sew: Vogue 1250

Another week, another Vogue 1250. I love this pattern.
The fabric I chose for this version is a luscious viscose/elastane blend jersey from Tessuti. It is incredibly light, soft and drapey. Once again, I think this dress will also be perfect in summer with a pair of black sandals.

I also think this dress will be great for travelling. It is light and can be rolled up and thrown in the bag. Perfect for our upcoming trip to the States!!

I did my standard sway back adjustment of 4cm on this dress and lengthened it 5cm.

Project Details
Pattern: Vogue 1250, size 18
Fabric: 33 Shades Only viscose/elastane jersey from Tessuti Online (sold out)

My love for this pattern is endless!
In other news, the Anise jacket is coming along very nicely. I've set one sleeve in and the other is on the agenda for tonight. Then it is on to the lining!!
