DIY Dress + Pattern Review

Hi Darlings, I am in NY until Wednesday and I have a ton to share and post but today I am on the run and off to the Simplicity offices. I did however want to share this DIY dress and pattern review which I had hoped to post on Friday but didn’t get a chance to edit the pics.

So on to this dress….I made V9021 last week out of this nonstretch knit fabric that was supposed to be my wearable muslin. I wasn’t sure if I was going to like the sleeves so I figured I would make it and if I liked it I would wear to Church the following day. I finished it last Saturday night and did not try it. I knew it was going to fit, so I went to bed. On Sunday when I went to get dressed and put the dress on I loved it but when I turned to the side you could see my bra because the sleeve openings are very low. As much as I am “fashion forward” I was not about to go to church bra strap showing, lol!!! So I took it off and hand sewed stitched the opening closed about 2.”

The fabric is great because although its technically a knit it has no stretch to it, so I was able to use it like I would a woven. Now that I know I love the sleeves I plan to make it again out of a stretch sateen I have in Navy.
