Description

This is Simplicity 1318 ‘easy to sew’ ,and I did version C. Im really happy how this turned out , I love the long length and the curved shape on the hem. While it is a simple pattern ,there is a lot of hand sewing involved which is worth it but is very time consuming . The pattern didnt have french seams so I ended up with all these ragged seams which i knew where just going to fray everywhere. So I ended up using hem iron on tape over the seams ,not the most attractive look but it does the trick .

Material Notes

silk polyster blend . light iron on interfacing
