The Couture Dress »
InstructionsThis is Simplicity 1715, one of the Amazing Fit patterns. I followed Susan's steps for fitting and constructing. I made the skirt lining gathered rather then pleated so that I wouldn't have pleats back to back at my waist.
Type of item: Clothing
Style: Romantic, Retro / Vintage
Dress fabric is an Oscar de la Renta wool/sick woven from Mood. Underlined with silk organza and lined with silk crepe de chine.
What are you most proud of?
Getting my seams matched up and finishing before 2013.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Go for it. None of it is hard; it is just time consuming. Susan's techniques actually make it easier to get a dress of which to be proud.
