I FINALLY made Simplicity 2724, and I absolutely love the pattern. Nary a change to be made.
The top of the dress is upcycled from a torn silk dress a coworker gave me a few years ago. The bottom is a blend I’ve had in my stash for years. I used my favorite trick of recycling an old necktie for the bias bound hem. I also made a matching belt from a vintage belt kit.
