This is Simplicity 2444; the dress that every man and his dog has made. Well maybe not the dog.
I used this amazing plane print fabric; it’s a lovely pea green with beige planes of varying sizes all over it.
I made a few alterations to the dress. I did a full lining as you can see. I also took a massive wedge out of the bust which helped as both a small bust adjustment and a petite bodice adjustment, two for one. I also swapped out the pleated skirt for gathers. Finally I used a lapped zipper insertion.
See more pictures on my blog!
I used an amazingly buttery soft cotton lawn from Textile Express. I really recommend the company. Great prices, they’re very helpful, they send samples and the delivery is super quick!
The lining is poly crepe in a beige/taupe.
It's time to enter for our grand prize, an EX100 machine PLUS a trip to Nashville!
