Bright Chevron Dress

I just finished a second version of Simplicity 2444. I think the combination of the bright fabric and 1960′s shape, gives it a mid-1960′s feel. It’s Megan meets Betty Draper. I fully lined this dress and completed every stitch by machine (Yeah! no hand sewing). I love this versatile pattern

It looks great. I love chevron details.

Oooooooh I love this dress. The fabric is lovely ( I’m a huge fan of red black & white – it always looks good) and the chevron looks perfect. Well done!
