Key West Dress

Project Description

What was your source for this sewing project? Online Photo or Website Name of website or photo Simplicity 2580 Link to website or photo http://www.simplicity.com/p-1538-misses-special-occasion-dresses.aspx What are you most proud of? I found this fabric for $8 total - the catch? - there was only 1 1/2 yards and it had a big sticker stuck to it. I got the sticker off with some gentle rubbing with vegetable oil. The 1 1/2 yards made cutting the obvious diagonals of this dress very challenging. After some experimentation and a little pattern alteration, I found enough fabric to make this work - woot! What advice would you give someone starting this project? I've made this pattern a couple of times now and I think it's a great basic dress (although it's listed as a 'Special Occasion' pattern). I think this cowl top (View D) would be the most universally flattering of the view options.

What you will need
