This dress is February’s outfit for my 12 Outfits this year.
The fabric was an op shop/thrift store find, a four meter length for $4.00.
Pattern: Simplicity 9744 view 3, also from the op shop.
I lowered the neck line by about 3cm and shortened the length of the skirt to just above my knees. Instead of a tie belt, I made a belt and am pretty pleased for my first attempt! If I use this pattern again I will definitely use an invisible zip, I’m not overjoyed with the regular zip. I also wish I had spent a little more time getting the top stitching right, its a bit pulled around the neckline, should have used my walking foot.
Overall, I’m satisfied with the end result, it’s a comfortable and cute, so I’m happy!
Lightbulb necklace also made by me.
Mystery fabric from the op shop, zip, belt buckle, interfacing, eyelets.
