Salt Lake City, ...
Simplicity 2550, bodice C. My first try at muslin-fitting prior to sewing the dress. Best fit I’ve had in a long time with my own sewing. Also the first time I have tried layering two fabrics and sewing it like one. I actually started this last autumn, but just never got around to doing the finishing touches until the past month or so. Already wore it to church once.
Brown mesh with a sewn leaf-applique over a mustard yellow cotton. Don’t remember exactly what kind of cotton, but it’s probably some kind of spandex blend because it is fairly thick with a tiny bit of stretch.
