Pattern: Simplicity 2724
Fabric: Both are mystery fabrics from Hancock's
Lining: China silk
Notions: 14" invisible zipper
Description: Project Runway pattern with skirt, bodice and sleeve variations
According to the flat pattern measurements, I cut the size 16 in the bodice and the skirt. I hand basted the neckline pleats and made the darts in the back of the bodice. The pattern suggested facings for the neck and armholes. I DESPISE facings and I never see them in RTW. I referred to "High-Fashion Sewing Secrets" for tips on binding a neckline. I did this by cutting bias strips 10 times (2 1/2") the finish width (1/4"). I did the same thing for the sleeve.
They pieces where drafted really well. I guess the instructions were okay, because I didn't use them. The only thing I didn't like about this pattern were the facings. Other than that, it's great and the possibilities are endless.
