I needed to knock that 'poor me' post off the top of this blog as quickly as possible, so chose Vogue 1236 to sew, as it really is a 'no brainer' pattern. There's nothing particularly exciting about this pattern. It's a simple sack dress with a pleated neckline, but in my experience you rely on these dresses most as they are so easy to wear anywhere.
The dress came together very quickly. The pleats are nice and no closures means an easy sew. The dress is surprisingly tulip shape, with a much wider middle than top or bottom, but it works.
All in all, this was a good, quick, pick-me-up sew, which is just what I needed.
