Simplicity 3673 View C

Yesterday I post View A of this pattern here, and despite its currently wrinkled appearance, I had to make view C with its fitted bodice and fuller skirt. For those of you who commented on it, I do have an iron, just no place to use it, but I will have an ironing board on Wednesday. :)

View C of this dress has the same bodice as View A, but the skirt is wider and not fitted. I thought about including the faux belt detail on this one two, but instead opted to keep it as simple as possible. As I made it, there were only 4 pattern pieces- skirt front and back, and bodice front and back. And like View A, it was super easy to put together and I had a new dress in a few hours.

  • Two beautiful dresses! You look great! I’ve eyed that pattern a few times in the store… I think I might be inspired to give it a go!

    • Rachel, it is one of the easiest patterns I have ever sewn and I am in love with both my new dresses! Give it a try. Just keep in mind the bodice is very closely fitted, so if in doubt, I’d advise going up a size and adjusting from there. Thank you so much!
