Wedding guest dress!

This dress is K2253 by Simplicity. I made this dress for my friend (in all the pics! Thanks Gem!) I am happy with the way it worked out, the fit over the bust needs a tweek, but at least it is a little big, not too small, it can always be taken in! This is the pattern with by far the most pieces to cut that I have ever made, all 39 of them!
Since my Mum wants another blue one in the longer dress and I want a short red one, I will be well practiced at this pattern!

Material Notes

Some satin material




Garment Type

      I have the same pattern and I feel like it should flow more. I have a gold material that I can’t wait to use

      Thank you, the dress is on my friend, She has a few weddings to attend this year, I was helping her with one dress so she had fewer to buy!

    Lovely – I love the colour and the detail. Once you have taken it in that little bit, will make it amazing so good luck with your other dresses too.

      Thank you, I think my friend will take it in a little, I hope to be able to make mine a better fit as I go along since I can keep trying it on as I go! Not always an option when sewing for others!
