Description

I totally dig this Simplicity pattern (1800, “Amazing Fit”), but the sizes seem quite funky : I’m a 42, since I was using some 100% cotton interlock jersey (so not to elastic) I cut a 40, and it’s still 2 sizes too big ! (I’m used to simplicity so this wasn’t a seam allowance mistake).

I’m going to sew it again very soon, this time I’m gonna make a 36 I guess.
The pattern is lovely to follow and wear.

More in french this way.

    This looks so comfy! I love the pockets – it looks perfect for hanging around the house and reading books in!

    This dress is very cute, even though it is loose on you. I hope, when you make the smaller one, you’ll post it as well.

    This dress does look super comfy! Perfect for fall. I would be interested to see how it looks more fitted because the loose dress is great as is!

    This is a lovely pattern and this dress looks great on you. I rather like the “relaxed” fit – it looks comfy and very wearable
