Simplicity 3673

I chose View A on the right.

Simplicity 3673 is a pattern I picked up because of its retro styling. I loved the idea of a jumper, but decided to just wear it as a dress once I finished it. This was one of the easiest patterns I have ever sewn, and I am beyond pleased with how it turned out- it looks just like the envelope images.

This dress is of a style I have wanted to wear for a long time, but wasn’t able to try until I had lost a lot of weight, and I’m happy to say I love it!

I used some deep wine cotton broadcloth I had in my stash or some time, making this a great $15 dress. I love when I get something so good for such a small investment!

I followed the directions almost all the way through, and only made one small change to the dress, and that was to add a large button to the center of the faux bow on the front.

Stop by my sewing blog here and see more photos of the dress.

Excuse my wrinkles, please!

  • Certo che lo potevi pure stirare prima di indossarlo…..

    • Yes, I am aware it needs an ironing… That’s on hold until I have somewhere I can actually iron. ;)

      • Mi piacciono i tuoi abiti :)
        Puoi usare direttamente il tavolo da pranzo per stirare, magari stendendovi prima un asciugamano per non rovinarlo :) Io faccio così!

        • Thank you!

          That’s true. :) I just have a habit of leaving my stuff all over the table- trying to keep everything contained in my craft room! I did order a small tabletop board last night. I will have it on Wednesday. :)

  • Very nice, and congratulations on losing weight!

    • Thank you! 65 pounds down and 35 more to go!
