Description

I had seen this dress made by a few others and really liked the flounce detail and the classic look of it and thought it would suit this grey and red floral fabric I’d bought a while back. The pattern is Simplicity 2360. I roll hemmed the flounces, and used electric blue satin bias binding for the neck and arms, the dress is quick to make – but I haven’t worn it yet because I haven’t gotten round to tacking the belt and pressing it flat – I can be such a procrastinator once the excitement of seeing how the garment has turned out is over! But tomorrow I will press that belt and wear this to work on Monday :-)

    I am making this now after seeing what you produced! But…. unfortunately I made it a size too small… After unpicking it all and making the seams smaller and putting in a zip, hopefully I will be able to wear it before summer runs out.!

    Great dress! I found a dress in the same style at H&M, and I really wanted to make something like it… now I’ve got a pattern thanks to you. The fabric looks lovely.

    this looks great. definitely better than the pictures on the pattern! i don’t know why but the project runway patterns always look so boring to me—you made this one come alive.
