3, 2, 1... Jumping on the Bandwagon!

The "Vogue 1250" Bandwagon, that is!


What to say that hasn't already been covered by the MILLION sewist's that have already made it? How about, "If you haven't yet, get on the bandwagon! There's plenty of space, and extra chocolate covered pretzels being passed around!"

I was a little nervous about the fit through the hips being too tight, but it was exactly what the pattern measurement said, and I even took it in on the sides above the waist. Here's the back:


The fabric has been in my stash forever! I can't remember if I bought it from Gorgeous Fabrics or the co-op! Either way, this ITY is a perfect weight, stretch, and design for this pattern. I bought a couple yards of black stretch crepe de chinese at Haberman's recently to make a LBD with this pattern!

Here's a close-up of the front drape. I wore a cami underneath since I am always bending over students' desks...


So, there you have it. A very easy success, just like all the others in sewing blog land! Winner, winner! Much like those Detroit Tigers I'll be cheering on tonight (wink, wink at Lindsay T!). And how about those Lions!? 4-0 for the first time since 1980! I've been listening to a lot sports in the sewing room lately...

Looks wonderful. Its amazing how this pattern works on everyone who has made it. I still have my doubts that it would look decent on me but it sure looks fabulous on you. Bet it took you no time to whip out.

Great dress, you look wonderful.

Jenny said...

Super pretty! I still haven't made up that pattern, but I have made a similar top out of that gorgeous fabric. :-)

Lindsay T said...

That's really cute on you! Take heart, I haven't made this pattern either. But I probably should go ahead and buy it since it looks great on everyone.

Did not think the Yanks were going to pull it out last night.

Texan said...

Just lovely :O). I have yet to see this dress not look great on anyone! I have the pattern just have to get to it!

Sewfast said...

Simply lovely! I was late to the party too, but glad I joined in because I have 3 now! My daughter in England even took notice...I need to pick up a pattern in her size to send to her! Great fabric choice too BTW!!!

CJ said...

I like the style, I'd probably like it as a shirt only because I'm not a "dress" wearer. lol!

BUT you look beautiful in your dress! :) Great job!

Fabulous dress! And HOW COOL is it for your Lions?!!? Much as I love my Patriots, I am totally psyched to see the Lions doing as well as they are this season.
