Fitted Floral Dress (Simplicity 2588)

Added Mar 5, 2014

Sydney, Australia






I made this dress using the project runway pattern simplicity 2588
It’s a really fun pattern with a flattering fit.
I tried cut out my pattern pieces so that the placement of the floral print was pretty and interesting.

More project images and details on my blog!

Material Notes

Stretch sateen purchased on discount from spotlight some years back
