Sunshine on a Cloudy Day Dress

Brandywine, Mary...






The patterns is from Cynthia Rowley’s Simplicity line #2406. I usually make my own patterns, but when I saw this one, I knew I had to buy and make it. Sad part was, I hadn’t been able to find the right material for the dress. I looked everywhere. Knits, wools, cottons, batiks, and silks. It wasn’t until I looked through the red tag fabrics that I found the perfect piece for the dress. Not only would it mean I’d have less to hem, but it was also in a color I’ve been in love with over the past year! The only difficult part (if it can even be called that) was the fact that the material was thin and I had to cut a lining out for it as well. Dress includes inseam pockets, shoulder cut-outs in the sleeves, and a nice, plunging slit in the back

      Thanks! I was surprised when they had it in mine. It’s still snug around my hips though, so sadly I can’t wear it quite yet, but that’s mostly my fault for not adjusting the pattern from the start. I hope you’ll be able to find it soon, it’s actually not that difficult to make =]
