So excited to have finished up 2016 with a bang! The last project I worked on was Simplicity 8252.
Lots of fiddling with chiffon, lots of fiddling with crepe, and a ridiculous amount of hand sewing. I actually jumped on this pattern when Simplicity released it and I’m glad I did- because even though it was a bunch of work, in the end it all came together.
Shortly after snapping these pictures, I actually added some hidden snaps along part of the center front (total of 3) to “close up” the front just a little bit more. The original pattern had the front fully closed, but to be honest, I knew that the buttoned up look wasn’t going to work for me or be very practical for how I like to wear my clothing.
I definitely would want to make this for myself again in the summer. Probably a cotton underdress and a light eyelet redingote, which would be awesome for a day adventure.
