In an effort to get my mojo flowing again I sewed up Vogue 1250. I've had this cut out and sitting on the floor of my sewing room for a couple of weeks, but I was really worried. Everybody has raved about this dress and I thought that I'd be the one person that the dress looks rubbish on. My fears were completely unfounded - it's as great as everyone says it is.
Kidding around with hubby
It's a very easy make, but still worth casting your eye over the instructions. I didn't think I needed to, but was kicking myself when I had to unpick little tiny black stitches on stretchy black fabric. My only alteration was to lengthen the bodice by 1.5 inches above the waistline, but that's pretty standard for me.
Sensible, but blurry
I've made this out of a lightweight polyester jersey, which drapes beautifully (love the neckline - it's perfect), but shows every lump and bump. I'll need a slip and the right underwear before I head out in public in this one.

I think it worked. I'm heading back into my sewing room tonight with the Australian Open to keep me company.
