I saw this lovely little dress on the Simplicity website yesterday.
I love the raglan sleeves, the princess seamed bodice, and the circle skirt. Unfortunately, I don’t look that great in a high necked dress (makes my bust look HUGE), plus, this pattern doesn’t come in my waist/hip size.
But I have this pattern:
It’s got the raglan sleeves and the princess seamed bodice. A circle skirt is super easy to hack, so that’s basically the only change I’d have to make. The lower neckline is flattering for me, and it comes in my waist/hip size.
So this is my project for the next week. I’ll need to lengthen the bodice of pattern 1800, and then add a circle skirt. I’ll take pictures as I go. I have some brown polka dot fabric sitting around, and that would perfectly match Matt’s brown satin vest (that I need to finish…erm….)
