      Sewing pattern Vogue 1240 (V1240) is a flirty, knee-length and sleeveless summer dress designed by Guy Laroche. Laroche is a French designer who designs everything from women’s wear to accessories to lingerie. I have not seen a lot of Laroche’s designs, but from what I have seen his clothes are made for the modern woman and can work in any setting if styled properly.

      I was so upset when I saw the front of the envelope because I feel in love with the print fabric that was used to create the dress. When I’m sewing patterns that I purchase from McCalls, Vogue, Butterick, or whomever else I like to follow the fabric guidelines until I am more knowledgeable and comfortable with my fabric choices; therefore, because


      I couldn’t find a print within the realms of the fabric suggestions on the envelope I opted for solid red chiffon. Because it is summer I want to play up a lot of color which us why I chose the blazing red chiffon. I also purchased solid black chiffon so I could create my own prints using tie-dye. The notions I had were an invisible zipper, hook and eyes, and snaps. At this point because I sew zippers so much with my sewing projects I have become sort of an expert which I like because I enjoy sewing on zippers. I had to add a lining which I always cringe about; however, I am trying to instill my aunt’s advice about lining whenever I have ...

        Besides the lining, I liked sewing this dress because it was a simple sewing project with minimal notions. I liked how I created the layered look with the direction of the sewing pattern of course. I liked the collar of the dress which I tend to stay away from collars during the summer; however, the collar actually elongated my neck when I tried the dress on making me look taller. The collar was also good for when I went into a restaurant without a jacket because it kept me warm without having anything on my arms. I like the fabric choice because it made the dress really move while I was walking especially when a breeze swept by me.

        Overall, I liked sewing pattern

        Vogue 1240 (V1240) because it was an easy project for me and it gave me the opportunity to practice lining a garment. I liked how I got the chance to work with an invisible zipper because I think they are the most useful notions when you’re sewing a garment that you want people to think was effortless to create. Not to mention, I dislike having all my zippers visible unless it adds to the design of the garment. I love the look and feel of the collar and I like how the dress flows: it’s very comfortable to wear and can transition from day to night. This dress definitely gets a lot of wear not to mention I have recreated it in various solids and prints.
