Vogue 1250 in a Woven Cotton (for Carolyn)


I promised Carolyn some photos of the front of this dress when I got them taken.  I think these aren't too bad, and so here they are.

 You can see that I used a 'belt' at centerfront, with covered buttons to attach it, to control the fullness that I had to add to be able to wear this dress in a woven, totally non-stretch fabric rather than the knit it was designed for.  There's also a zipper on the side seam for ease of getting it on.  You still have to pull it over your head, but this helps.

Thank you, Carolyn! I think I've made this pattern up at least 8 times. It's pretty hard to beat.

Thank you! I love these shoes, but they could be a little more comfortable. ๐Ÿ˜‹
