6282 v. 1250

So, I’ve made the famous Vogue 1250 draped front dress. In fact, I made it twice (take one, take two). I love it. It’s great and sexy and comfortable and has a wonderful drape. I love it in every way. But do you guys ever get the itch to try another pattern that’s just like one that you already have?? I picked up M6282 the other day with my Vogue dress in mind. I love the Vogue dress but I want to try the McCalls one now. There are some obvious similarities between the two like the draped front and the cap sleeves. There are also some subtle differences like the 6282 has a little ruching at the waist, 6282 has the option for a higher neckline, 1250 has that interesting back seaming detail while 6282 has typical side seams. I’m curious to see how they are different on the body.

Has anyone else been tempted to try both of these? I’m hoping to crack this out this weekend.

Bless you for posting this!! I was just thinking about making a cowl neck top like the 1250, but I wanted a higher neckline and sleeves, and there it is!!! You rock! Can't wait to see how yours comes out.

I have Mccalls 6282, but have only made tops from it.... Like half a dozen tops. It has become a favorite go to pattern for a top. Looking forward to your comparison of the two dresses.

I get that urge ALL THE TIME, which is why my pattern stash has moved beyond countable into infinity.

As an odd one out, I am not tempted by these patterns (could be the bloated tummy look that I have going on). I think I will just watch you do your thing, and enjoy it, too!

Yes, I do! I have both of these, too. I've always been a sucker for a cowl neckline, though!

I just found your blog researching a post I'm going to do on the Kuspuk ! I love the clothes you make and they fit you so nice. I'm in Alaska too down in Homer I don't see where you are? I quit quilting too and am into making clothes for me just because I can. After years of sewing for others it's my turn now. I'm going now to look for one of your patterns I love.
