I made this dress from start to finish in a day, including shopping for the pattern and fabric……
I made view B, but made it floor length.
The pattern was quite bold and I spent ages laying it out on the floor trying to get the sides matched up. I’ve since learnt that I need to cut out on my kitchen hardwood floor, rather than the lounge carpet – I found the bottom layer gripped the carpet and the top layer slid all over.
It was simple to make. I love simple! I made a knee length slit either side so I could walk. I didn’t bother hemming the bottom – it doesn’t fray and no one has noticed so far! Hemming it is at the very bottom of my to do list!!
I plan to make all of the versions of this dress but need to get the pattern back of a friend. She now has 3 new dresses and also said it was easy peasy!
I’ve only got one pic of me in this dress…… Here’s me with my family at a Golf Club ‘do’. My sons just about the same size as me but I was wearing killer heals!!
Looks really lovely. And a great fit.
I just picked up that exact pattern recently. Haven’t gotten around to picking out fabric for it yet. I love the print you chose…It really gave this plain dress pattern some interest.
Hi, I’m just reading through my old blogs and noticed I’ve not replied. Have you gotten round to making this yet? 😃✂️
