Simplicity 3238

Simplicity 3238 was originally intended to be made as a halter weskit-style blouse and separate skirt, but for some reason it seemed like a good idea to make a dress out of it (rather than just use a halter dress pattern). A halter dress pattern would have made a lot more sense. The stripe-matching went better than expected.
I can’t decide whether I want to tack on the belt or find some sort of a buckle to use with it.

  • Oh, that is extremely cute. Love the colors and your pattern matching looks perfect :D It’s so satisfying when that all goes to plan.

  • Nice job! love the pattern , the stripes match is perfect

  • This is one of my favorite patterns! Your version is really cute!

  • I love that dress!!!

  • Love all these chevron stripes!! Such fresh and cheerful colors! Great job!

  • Cute! So summery! If you do a belt buckle, I would suggest a narrow vertical rectangular one. Buckle or no buckle, it’s still fab!

  • Very nice pattern matching and I love the use of the stripes on the belt.

    Did you use the Riley Blake pink stripe fabric for the top half? I love it :-)
