Description

This is my latest make using Simplicity 1873. To date, I have made a total of 6 dresses using the bodice from this pattern including this dress and my current refashion project. When I purchased this pattern a few years back, I was in search of a pattern with a darted bodice and not princess seams which was rare to find at the time.

I really enjoy using the bodice from this pattern because it’s fairly quick and easy to whip up and it fits me perfectly in the bust … no F.B.A. required!

Pattern Modifications

This time around, I made the following changes
Changed the neckline from jewel to v-neckline
Cut in the shoulder line by 2 inches
Added ruffes to the bodice around the neckline
Swapped the patterns pleated skirt for a self-drafted half circle skirt
1.75" Short waist adjustment

Material Notes

Ankra print from Ghana
