The Mean Reds Reducing Dress

Added Apr 11, 2010

by onegoodapple

North Yorkshire,...






It’s been a gloomy couple of months in the Apple household so what better eay to herald the somewhat belated arrival of Spring than with a flowery dress?!

I used Simplicity pattern 2591 for this dress and made no real alterations. Let me tell you, I’ll buy Simplicity again in a heartbeat, this is such a straightforward pattern. And my favourite part has to be the pockets. Perfect for hiding marbles and sunglasses and all manner or summery things. Instantly the mean reds have become a thing of the past!
