Simplicity K2444. A nod to the fifties with fitted bodice, 3/4 length sleeves and a full skirt. I’ve put on a lot of weight since my thyroid was removed in December and my boobs have a life of their own so I had to do a full bust adjustment to get the bodice to fit. I am a petite so this was a challenge for me since I’ve never had to do this before. I think it came out pretty well but it is in danger of looking like a tent!. I was going to wait to lose the weight before I used this fabric but I have nothing to wear so here it is.
Black crepe , satin binding , invisible zipper. The crepe was very slippery to work with so it’s probably a cheap imitation. It ravelled so much it was a bit of a nightmare so I bound a lot of the edges as I went along. Now it’s sewn the fabric does look nice.
