Mood Bold Floral Jersey and Vogue 1250





There is no question about the popularity of Vogue 1250.  This easy dress stormed the internet in 2011.  dozens of bloggers and sewists posted pictures of they versions on various social media platforms.  This is the fourth time I've made it.  My other dresses, retired now, are posted  herehere, and here.









So, of course, it was time to make a new dress.  And I made it with this beautiful, bold but lightweight Italian floral jersey from Mood.  You can find it here at the Mood online store.



It's available in three color ways.  This breathable jersey has 4-way stretch.  It's very light and perfect for summer dresses and T's.





There isn't much more I can say about the fabric.  It speaks for itself.  And as for the making of the dress.  You can finish this baby in two hours from cut to press.  Yep, that quick and easy, especially after you've made it a few times.

So that's all for now.

Happy Sewing!

  4. Love the dress! I fell in love with this pattern back when. It looked fabulous on everyone else. I had to have one. Unfortunately, that cowl looked just awful on me. I thought that making the cowl smaller might be the trick. So now you've reminded me that I still have that project to tackle. We'll see if that ever happens!
