If there’s one commercial pattern line I am always excited to see, it is Cynthia Rowley’s for Simplicity. Not only are these patterns elegant garments, but they also implement daring sewing techniques that I would normally never execute correctly. Thank goodness for the exceedingly well written sewing instructions. This appears to be a rather simple dress, jersey top with a gathered skirt. But what you don’t see are the in-seam pockets. Also the bodice is a little tricky, what with all those curved lines.

This was my first time sewing in-seam pockets and the instructions were incredibly helpful. It makes me want to put in-seam pockets into every single dress I make from now on. Plus they are the definition of comfort. Being a neurotic human being like myself, if I don’t have my hands in my pockets, I am making too many nervous gestures for one to approach me without fear. Perhaps that was a little too much information for a project description.
