The Last Hurrah Dress

Project Description

What was your source for this sewing project? Online Photo or Website Name of website or photo Simplicity 1803 Link to website or photo www.simplicity.com/p-7502-misses-miss-petite-dresses-project-runway-collection.aspx What are you most proud of? I made this dress in 2 evenings while packing and moving my entire home! Recently I wore it to a celebrity Hollywood party and famous people complimented my dress... that was pretty cool. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Just like any pattern, read the instructions first before starting. I found the garment ease to be a tad too generous (and I'm a true hour glass so I have curves always need allowance!), although it still fits beautifully. Next time I will measure the ease and compare it to my measurements to make the necessary adjustments.

What you will need

  • Pique cotton from JoAnn Fabrics
  • standard zipper
  • matching thread.
