The fabric for this dress is pretty hit-or-miss – both my mom & boyfriend HATE it, but I think it’s kinda cute! What do you think?
The pattern is Simplicity 2458, a sweet little shirtwaist dress with sleeve & skirt options. I went with view 2, although I significantly shortened the sleeves & the skirt (the original hem came down to my ankles. Ew!). The only fitting adjustment I made was to add about 1/2″ to the side seams below the bust dart – everything else fit beautifully straight out of the envelope!
As always, lots more pictures & info at my blog, LLADYBIRD.
