Simplicity 2043

June 7, 2013

I just finished this dress in time, because it seems that summer is finally starting here!

The pattern I used is Simplicity 2043. I really love the details of this dress. The skirt has pleats. There are also pleats at the waist of the front and back bodice. The shoulder seam of the front is gathered. I love the notched collar and the buttons. I made this dress of a floral cotton fabric. The fabric is a little sheer so I lined it with a white cotton.

I made my first fabric covered belt ever! I was always a bit scared of the eyelets part. It didn’t turned out perfect, but for a first time I shouldn’t complain.

I haven’t made any changes to the pattern except using less fabric for the hem. Instead of 3 inches, I made a 5 inch hem.

Enjoy your weekend!
