This is my go at Vogue 1250. It is a DKNY pattern that has been all over pattern review lately and seems to look pretty dang good on everyone. So imagine my disappointment when the first set of pictures we took made me look like I was smuggling a spare tire. Don't worry though after some deep breathing, much looking in the mirror, and reassurance from my always patient husband I discovered that this dress does not work well with black slimming panties. I know that seems counter-intuitive but they somehow made my tummy more prominent. So just when we all thought there was nothing left to say about this pattern there you go be careful of the shape wear it seems to drape better over a more free approach to undergarments.
