Another Simplicity 4640

April 28, 2012

Here it is, finally done! A couple snafus but no dress is complete without them. I seamed the back to save fabric (I really should not have, I think that was where my snug shoulders come into play). It’s a bit smaller than the other one I made, only by about 1/2 inch. The only thingS I changed were lengthening the bodice by an inch and snipping off the pointy bottom bodice detail and adding cuffs.

The fabric was pretty easy to sew and I love that I won’t have to iron it. I had planned on making a belt from the chambray but I like the look of it as it is.

  1. The dress looks great; it is very becoming on you. I wasn’t sure I was going to like your proposed blue on the sleeves and on the collar, but I do! It makes the dress! Congrats!
