Black and white chevron dress (Simplicity 1803)

Added Mar 5, 2014

I love black and white together! I added a chevron to the center front seam (sorry but that’s the only place I bothered with matching the stripes).

I used Simplicity 1803 I did make a few changes to the pattern…

The fit is a little looser than i’d like, but I do enjoy how this dress makes me feel ladylike!

More project images and details on my blog!

Material Notes

Plain weave poly/cotton stripe material (from lincraft at about $5 per meter it was half price), Invisible zip, Gtermann polyester thread, Iron on interfacing (for facings)
