Simplicity 2105

In the attempt to expand Hawaiian pieces in my closet, I paired Simplicity 2105 pattern with this amazing fabric I found at Joann’s for 5$ a yard on sale!

This dress calls for a whopping 5 yards of fabric. I made this dress in white brocade fabric for Christmas. I cut all 4 skirt panels, which were impossible to sew unto the bodice. Each skirt panel is 35 inches in length (size 18). So, as you can imagine 140 inches of fabric sewn unto a 30 inch waist is quite bulky. This time I only sewed 2 panels. If you don’t wear a petticoat, it will be fine. However, if you like the shape of a stiff underskirt — I think I would recommend 3 panels. 2 panels of skirt plus the bodice called for 3 yards of fabric.

The dress itself was so easy to sew. I put it together in about 3 hours (cutting time included).

Full length

Walking with my 11 month old! This was the best picture I had of the back!

    This is one of the cutest vintage dresses I’ve seen in a while – and the fabric makes it look festive but not sweet. Great job!

      Right?!? I couldn’t believe it was on sale. It’s going to wash really well too. I overlocked the inside, so I hope I have this dress for a long time.
