Marsala-simplicity-2444-feature_large

Description

Another fit & flare dress added to my DIY dress collection. This time is a famous Simplicity 2444 pattern, sewed in a cotton sateen fabric with a hint of stretch. The fabric has beautiful painterly prints with marsala, black on powder blue background. This colour palette is pretty trendy at the moment and you can see on lots of high fashion houses such as Valentino or Elie Saab. I purchased mine at Spotlight (in Australia) and last time I checked, it’s still available at clearance section!

I sewed sleeveless version. Love the skirt design with pockets. The dress fits me like a glove without major adjustment. I highly recommend this pattern to anyone.

Thank you for reading :)
