DIY Dress With Bralette + Pattern Review S8132

HI DARLINGS! I love this pattern so much. It is super easy to sew up and the bralette sews up so fast. I plan to make this combo a lot this summer. I NEVER sew for anyone (my kids if they ask) but it was such a fun pattern to make up that I offered myself up to Tieko and told her I would make one for her, LOL!

The dress is from a Chambray I had in my stash and the bralette is a stretch lace. The pattern isn’t online yet but you can find it at the stores for sure. My pattern review is below and if you are wondering my shades and wedges are both old and from Steve Madden. My jewelry is mostly from Old Navy and Michael Kors.


Pattern Description: Simplicity 8132 Misses Dresses and Bralette

Pattern Sizing: I cut the 6

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes

Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes! Oh my gosh I LOVE this pattern. I will be making a ton of these bralette’s and dresses.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I love everything!

Fabric Used: This is chambray for the dress and I used a stretch lace for the bralette.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: None

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? YES!!!
