I made this dress using the pattern for Simplicity 2473 as the basis. It’s inspired by the L’Wren Scott Headmistress Dress (but cost me $2850 less!). I drafted a sleeve, collar, and cuff and added them to the Simplicity bodice and skirt. The dress is made of black double knit (poly/rayon/lycra, I think), and the contrast collar and cuffs are are made of white ponte di roma. I’m also attaching the picture of the original on Nicole Kidman, but you probably can’t tell us apart since I look JUST LIKE HER.
UPDATE: Check out my blog for more info and a FREE pattern kit download so you can make your own! (Just the pieces I drafted in my size; you’ll still need the pattern for Simplicity 2473.)
