I’m back to share my latest experiments in sewing. Lately, I have been playing around with a couple of patterns from the 1960s, and ended up with two really wearable dresses. My first go at the rather unexciting Simplicity #5780 involved some grading that proved unnecessary, and I was really surprised! I loved the style of the dress, however, and decided to try the pattern bodice again. I cut it in it’s original size, but attatched another skirt. A dirndl style this time, as I had not made that before. The result was even more satisfying than the first, and I now have two new favorite dresses from this pattern I initially bough just for the simplicity of it (and because it had a bonus jacket pattern! 2in1 = win!)
So moral of the story, don’t pass up a simple looking pattern. It may be your new favorite
