I sewed up Simplicity 2406 for my baby sister’s 22nd birthday. She’s quite petite so I took two inches out of the bodice. I also cut a size smaller than she measures; so the baggy fit of this dress wouldn’t overwhelm her frame. I really like the open back. It adds just the right amount of sex appeal without being vulgar.
