HI DARLINGS! Can we say yes to the dress? I made this dress using SIMPLICITY #9642 and a beautiful black and pink Rayon Challis FLORAL FABRIC from MELANATED FABRICS. I wanted something fun and flirty and this fabric and pattern combo is exactly that. I have so many prints in my stash that I couldn't decide which one to use for this dress but the pink roses just kept calling my name.
This was also a really quick dress to make, I love a great project that comes together easily. I plan to make this again in a solid and will be wearing this dress all spring and summer long. The bodice front has gathers at the bust and the skirt has princess seams, the ruffles are cut 3 on the fold so you get a nice amount of gathers. I did end up putting 1/4" elastic along the back waist seam because I felt it was too much of a gap.
Let me know what you think! Thank you so much for reading.
