Simplicity 2579




As I mentioned in a couple of posts back, I'm playing catch-up! This was one of my many summer dresses which I love, the color is so vibrant! Now, anyone who knows me, also knows that I kinda stear clear of color,lol. I'm a "Black-Out" chic, open my closet and that's all you get, lol!




Well, after my client asked me, do I ever wear any color? It got me to thinking, this year, I will only make and buy fabrics in color....time for a change.





Pattern Description: It's described as a special occasion dress, I chose view C.

Pattern Sizing:
Most sizes, I chose a 14

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes, I think so, lol.



Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes, they were ok, although I got a bit lost on the casing instructions.


Fabric Used: Some type of Rayon


Pattern Alterations or any design changes you made:
I didn't make any alterations on this dress but next time a FBA.


Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? yes, and maybe the
longer version!

Conclusion
I thought this was a pretty cute dress overall, i like the fabric especially. I just
got a bit lost on the casing instructions and had to come back to it the next day! .........Umm nope, that didn't help much, lol. So I improvised, and that worked for me! This is great for our hot summers here, (fall too!) and it only took 2 evenings to finish!


More additional pictures.




This was my first try @ an invisible zipper, and it was easy peasy with the right foot!



There were a couple issues, with the casing on this dress, I just didnt get it, so I improvised. I've been experimenting with bust adjustments lately and one was needed here. Next time I feel a lil more confident in trying to make a FBA. There are so many wonderful bloggers, that took time out and walked me thru this process, and I thank you, so much because I'm a visual learner!


Seeya!
