Made from a Cynthia Rowley Simplicity pattern. This dress has pretty big sentimental value to me, because the fabric was a vintage robe of my Grandma’s. She passed away recently, and the need to make something beautiful from the already lovely fabric seemed greater than ever. Since I didn’t have a ton of yardage, I was lucky that this pattern worked with it; I BARELY scraped by with the fabric I needed. I’m very happy with how it turned out; the fit is great, and the material is silky and extremely comfortable to wear.
I altered the pattern by adding an elastic waistband, instead of having the dress hang loose and tying it with a tie belt. I’m very happy with that look, as there wasn’t enough fabric to make a tie belt anyway!
Take a trip down the aisle in these gorgeous gowns, or change the fabrics for a spring party dress.
