This dress was made from Simplicity 1998. The Sew Easy line which sells at Wal-Mart for one dollar.
This pattern was like a sack as is ! I took it in about 4 inches through the sides and tapered it into an a-line. It’s a super easy pattern and slips right over the head. I also added a band to the bottom, shortened the sleeves, shortened the hem, and split the collar so it would lie flat.
The fabric is this interesting metallic woven knit combination. It’s soft and cozy on the inside and I have never seen anything like it. I bought it at a going out of business sale for a fabric store and the content wasn’t listed. But it feels expensive ! I only paid two dollars a yard for it. ( Love that!)
