Last Summer Dress

Added Sep 12, 2010

London, United K...






I used Simplicity 2591 view B for this dress. As everyone else who’s made this pattern has said the pockets are great!

I decided to go for a hand-finished lapped zip which was well worth the effort. I think it goes well with the vintage style of the dress.

Material Notes

This dress is made from a pair of curtains I picked up in a charity shop. I think it’s 100% cotton. I love the flowers!

    The fabric is gorgeous! And it feels good when there is still a little bit of sun to walk in. I love the pattern, especially the princess cut of the top.

    I wouldn’t have looked at that pattern twice because the fabric choices on the envelope were kind of drab. Yours is much more appropriate for the dress. Perfect!
