Simplicity 3875 (again)

One of my latest sewing experiments: Simplicity 3875. Again. But this time I added a shirred section to the back to allow for my expanding and contracting. I had more fabric to work with  this time so the skirt is a bit fuller.

The bodice is entirely lined, except for the shirred section which is a piece of the outside fabric folded in half.

  • Oh, lovely. The extra length and no belt makes all the difference!

    (And apparently 1950s sun-dresses are going to be in fashion, so you’ll be right on trend….)
