DKNY Vogue 1250


Vogue 1250, the DKNY dress that everyone loves, including me now!  I don't have a lot to say about this pattern as I think it has all been said before.  I made a size 12 based on finished size for hips.  I f I wanted to be really particular I could probably size the top down slightly and widen slightly at the hips for my measurements, but knit fabrics are so forgiving that I didn't bother.  I am happy with the result.  


This is another entry for the fabric stash contest.  This was bought from Gorgeous Fabrics and was called Pointillist Chevron.  I purchased it in September 2010.  It is a polyester lycra blend.



As usual when I haven't much to say - I put up lots of piccies! (winking at you in the one above showing the cowl detail).


One of my buddies on Pattern Review Down Under wondered what this dress would look like on a shorty.  I don't consider myself short but measured my height and I am 162cm or nearly 5'4" tall.

My Strippy quilt is finished and washed (was very dusty) so I will be showing that soon as well as the Sorbetto top.... Ciao!
