I found two matching linen Pottery Barn curtains at the Goodwill and was hoping against hope I’d have enough for this dress (Simplicity 2497, Cynthia Rowley)! I’d made a muslin before, and shaved off a size on the bodice – sounds like other people who’ve done this project have had to do the same. If I make the dress a second time, I think I’d make the bodice even more streamlined. I shortened the hem considerably and used my blind hem foot for the first time.
Even though it’s a bit summery, I’m excited enough about this dress to warm it up with tights and boots for the fall/winter!
