This is my review of the Simplicity 2588 Project Runway dress with thin yoke, straight skirt, pleated sleeves and pockets.
I made the yellow version on the left, minus the raglan sleeve option. This is a muslin version of the dress, which I plan to remake in a coral lace fabric with contrasting lining. The only major adjustment I made was to lengthen the skirt by about 4 or 5 inches. I also chose to do a blind hem rather than follow the instructions included with the pattern. Overall, the pattern was easy to use, and fit well. The instructions for the yoke facings got a little confusing, there must be a better way to attach the yoke to the bodice besides top stitching it on. I attempted another way which in the end worked, however, the seams are fairly mickey-moused together. Originally I was going to add the same-fabric belt, but I found I like the look of another contrasting belt better.
