Description

This dress has three different shades of purple silk left over from when my mom and I had a business making eye pillows about ten years ago. I made it from Simplicity 2497, though I made a couple adjustments—raising the waistline about 2 1/2 inches and taking about three inches out of the back band. My brother’s getting married in June, and I’ll be making my own bridesmaid dress, so this was in preparation. I tested out a whole bunch of patterns, and though I love this one, it doesn’t quite suit the fabric I found for the big day. It may just be my rehearsal dinner dress, though…
