Description

Completed: December 1, 2008


This is the first half of my sewing class final: just a simple “easy-to-sew” dress that took around 5 hours to complete. I absolutely love it! My favorite part are the neckline pleats — they’re adorable!


I really enjoyed this pattern; it’s so simple but elegant, and the dress looks great paired with knee-high socks and heels for those cold, wintery days. ♥

    Thank you for all the comments, ladies! ♥ Nikki, here’s a link to the pattern on Simplicity’s website: http://www.simplicity.com/dv1_v4.cfm?design=2846 It’s pretty popular, and I’ve even seen it at Hobby Lobby, so you shouldn’t have any trouble finding it if you decide to buy it in-store. =)
