Description

My first take on this pattern. It’s from Simplicity’s Amazing Fit range, making it possible to fit the dress to your cup size. The pattern runs very large. I had to take it in more than 1.2" at both sides. Besides from that I’m very pleased with the pattern and the result. More information and photos can be seen on my blog

    Are those big pockets? They do look rather unusual and very cute! And I love how your funky shoes match the dress :)

      Pockets, yup – big nope. I love the pocket placement on this dress, but next time I’ll largen the pockets – for some reason they are unusually small.
