Simplicity says: Inspired by Project Runway. Misses’ Dress sewing pattern with collar and sleeve variations.
I say: Vintage style dress with four bodice darts and a nice pleated skirt.
This dress has been in the works for far too long. Many things distracted me but I finally finished it. It is a very simple dress to make and I highly recommend it. My version is out of a stretch cotton woven so there are fewer fitting issues. Actually I had no fitting issues! How nice is that?
I can see this pattern becoming a basic in people’s sewing arsenal; interchanging bodice and skirt variations.
I have paired it with a thrifted pearl bow pin and also a denim fabric belt from some jeans I bought a year ago and thought I would never use!
