Since the last dress I made, I've been in the mood to wear halters. So I pulled out this dress I made 2 years ago.
It's Simplicity 2579. Now, let's talk about the what I've learned since 2 years ago when I made this dress...
First of all, I should have definitely made a FBA. And a sewn in bra like I did on the eyelet dress would've been great. And being that I made this dress out of silk crepe de chine and the lining is of silk habotai, the side and back of the bodice would've really benefitted from some boning.
You live and you learn. Regardless, I think this dress is a great summer vacation dress and would be appropriate almost anywhere! It would do just fine if you're visiting London hotels or Ocean City hotels as a wardrobe choice to pack for that next big trip. Have any of you ever gone back and worn something that you'd sewn years ago and thought of all the ways you could have improved the garment if you were to sew it today?
