Description

This is my new favorite dress – no doubt about that. If you ask me this pattern is perfection! Simplicity 2591. It took me a while to get my hands on this pattern and now I know why….the only thing I added to the pattern is the sleeve variation. I adore 3/4 length sleeves. Oh, I also lengthened the dress a bit to fit my height.

    I love your dress! It looks fabulous in that fabric. When I saw your project two days ago, I was inspired to find this pattern. I have searched for it everywhere and finally found it this afternoon! Yay! Thank you. (Oh . . . and I plan to make it with 3/4 sleeves.)

    Beautiful fabric, it suits the dress perfectly! This pattern is actually one of my favourites too, I made the dress of a thousand bows and I wear it constantly! I love your sleeve variation, I might try that style in black as the pattern is such a great fit. Again, such a lovely dress!

    very nice,, the sleeves go well with the dress, sometimes a variation makes all the difference.
