Crimplene

Some belated photos of a dress I finished last year…

Simplicity 3107 in Crimplene, I had to wear it today, so better grab a moment for a quick few photos before Rob was off on his bike.

My first project working with crimplene, in this pretty pale blue that came from my Nana’s stash.  You can read a bit more about it in an earlier post, here.  Here’s the original pattern envelope, I have also made another variation in red synthetic satin.

I have all these unresolved issues with this dress, the crimplene doesn’t sit quite so well, so maybe not the best fabric choice, and the raglan sleeves… I love them, I’m not used to them.  I would like to make it again, but will need to delve deeper into my fabric stash….

You can read more over at my blog, Mermaid’s Purse.
