I made this dress about three years ago when I finally got back into sewing. There are a few things I would like to change (like the size...it's a wee bit big), but overall I'm pleased with how it turned out.
Pattern: Simplicity 2591, 2009, I think
Fabric: Laura Ashley from FM, about $6.00 per yard (about 2.5 yards)
Notions: Invisible zipper, hook and eye
Time to complete: About 8 hours
Total cost: About $15.00
First worn: Hm...can't remember
Wear again? Of course...I wear this one a lot.
When I make this again, I will size it down some (this one is a 10 and I could probably wear an 8 or even 6), and I would like to add piping to the pockets and neckline. I may also do a version with a Peter Pan collar because I think Peter Pan collars make the world a prettier place.
What are some additions that you like to make to patterns?
