DIY YELLOW SILK MAXI DRESS USING SIMPLICITY #8635

HI DARLINGS! This is the first piece in my #DIYYELLOWCOLLECTION. This silk maxi dress using SIMPLICITY #8635 is going to get made a lot, lol. Full details on my modifications and fabric are below.

The #DIYYELLOWCOLLECTION is for sure going to be one of my favorite collections. This one is dressier than my #DIYDENIMBLUECOLLECTION. If you missed the BLUE or PINK collections you can catch up. HERE and HERE.

I did a FABRIC HAUL VIDEO and talked about my fabric picks, and in that post, I also talked about my plans for this collection including patterns I plan to use.

 
 

DIY YELLOW SILK MAXI INFO & MODIFICATIONS

SIMPLICITY 8635 is great summer pattern and the back is just so fabulous! I decided I wanted to make View A  which is the dress with the back from View C which is a jumpsuit, and since I was using a semi-sheer striped silk fabric I needed to create a lining for the skirt. I decided on a nude fabric for the lining which also gave the back a clean finish. I added 2′ to the length so I could do a 2.5″ wide hem.

I got the fabric at MOOD in DOWNTOWN LA
