Floral Two Tone Dress

Added Jan 10, 2012

Cameron Park, Ca...






This is Simplicity 2724 (project runway) pattern. I’ve made this pattern before with a different bodice. This went together pretty fast. I have the perfect cardigan and cognac boots so I can wear it now. The fabric is from Mill End in Portland which I bought over a year ago.

Material Notes

Light sheer floral cotton for top and cotton sateen for the skirt.

      Thank you, bought the two pieces of fabric never really planning to pair them together, just worked out that way ;-).

      Thanks for all the lovely compliment, just loved both fabrics when I bought them. I didn’t buy them at the same time nor was I to trying to match them up for anything special. I was bored and decided to create something and on a whim realized how well the two pieces of fabric looked together.

      You must just love certain colours and your eye can match very well as in the case of your lovely dress. I hope you get lots of wear and many compliments from this dress.
