Simplicity 5408

February 22, 2011

I’ve finally finished my first item for Colette Patterns’ Spring Palette Challenge: Simplicity 5408


I’m really pleased with how it turned out; the fit and colour are terrific. I know it will be on high rotation during spring and summer.

I love the little bit of complimentary fabric peeking out from the pleat.


The dress also fits in with my Hepburn Hepburn and Lifetime Wardrobe projects, as well as the Sewing Through the Decades Challenge.

  1. YES, SUPER CUTE!! I guess I should big thru all my patterens I have and start a dress of my own. I have some cute 30's to 60's.
