I made this dress from Simplicity 4072, View B. I hadn’t planned to use this fabric for this dress, but once I brought the purple jersey home and started thinking about what to do with it, I couldn’t resist! I liked the idea of the tone-on-tone and purple is one of my favorites at the moment! The jersey is my favorite kind- lightweight and very stretchy (4-way). I especially like (and was not aniticipating) that the dress brings so much volume to my upper half and almost makes my hips look small! woohoo!
I had quite a few issues with this dress, mostly having to do with my choice to use slippery satin on all of the difficult pieces. There are lots of somewhat visible issues, but that’s ok, because I love it anyway :) haha
