Simplicity 1620

August 20, 2010

This is my new favorite dress! I’m in love with it, its simple and I can wear it anywhere. It’s also soo comfortable! This was my first pattern that I had to make bigger. It was a bust 30 and I needed it to be 34. I ended up just adding the inches in the middle, which I know isn’t the correct technique, but it turned out well enough and it fits me.

Originally I was going to add the white collar but I didn’t measure right and it came out too short and the fabric I used for it was too stiff anyways. I would like to make it again someday with the collar though, I love the way that looks.

  1. Love the bow on the side – I am always afraid to buy a pattern that is not my size, too, because I'd have no idea how to alter it – hard enough just to add inches at the waist! (because really, no one is ever those proportions). 🙂
