Simplicity 2692 - Electric Blue One-shoulder Dress

2:00 PM


Project Details:

Pattern: Simplicity 2692 - View D

Pattern Sizing: 4-20. I cut the size 4.

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? It does!

Fabric: Blue cotton/spandex jersey.

Were the instructions easy to follow? The were very easy. Since I made this dress in a knit, I serged most of it. I completed it within a couple of hours.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I love that this pattern offered many versions and you could really make it your own.

Pattern Alterations or any design changes you made: According to the flat pattern measurements, I knew all of the pieces would be a little too wide. I altered the bodice, the midriff and the skirt by removing 2 inches from the width. She's tall and narrow.

Conclusion: I made this dress for a school banquet that Mikaela was attending. This pattern was leftover from stacks of patterns I had bought Amber. Glad I have a second daughter that can use these!

  10. Oh doesn't she just look lovely!?! Party and event dresses for girls that age are so hard to find, they're either too little girl-ish or show far too much skin, it seems-you hit just the right note and the color suits her beautifully!
