This is a dress that I've had laying around to sew for months. It was so easy and quick, I don't know what took me so long.
The pattern is Simplicity 9010
and I made view C. I cut a size 16 and made my normal alterations and adjustments.
I made a one inch sway back adjustment; 2" full seat adjustment and I added 3" of length.
I constructed the dress with French seams and narrow hems instead of bias binding.
I like the version with the ties. It makes for a perfect day dress. You can actually be comfortable moving around and doing daily things while wear it without fear of having it slide off your shoulders. And I tacked the back where the centers meet. It's perfectly bra-friendly.
This dress is so cute and I just love it. I hope I get around to making at least another color. This one will no doubt be a spring/summer staple.
I love this! You look so sophisticated but comfortable at the same time!ReplyDelete
