Iowa City , Iowa...
Drop-waist dress with pleated skirt has neckline details and 3/4 sleeves.
Simplicity Amazing Fit pattern 1715.
The instructions were very easy to follow and also helped with fitting concerns.
When I first cut the pattern I followed the instructions and cut an unlined dress.
I then remembered (of course after I had finished cutting!?) that I had used this poly linen blend fabric from Joann previously (here) and knew I would hate the dress if it were unlined due to the fabric characteristics.
I had to scramble to find I lining in my scrap bin. I flat lined the bodice and sleeves in taffeta scraps (from the bridesmaids dresses) for structure. And I found a basic lining fabric for the skirt.
I also hoped the lining would add so wrinkle retention to this fabric but you can see after 8 hours of wear no this fabric is wrinkled.
I love the color, the drop waist and the collar!
