So I was doing my daily blog reading and ran across this dress on NuSophisticate and was INSTANTLY in love. I clicked the link to the original dress on jcrew.com and this can NOT be the same dress!
Well I'll be. It IS the same dress. HATE it on this model.
Well NOW, I want one too. Bow belt and all lol. Enter in Simplicity 1873
Pattern Sizing: 14-22
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow? SUPER EASY!
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE everything about this pattern. It was really close to my inspiration dress.
Fabric Used: Linen polka dot (the dots are raised) that my mom gave me lol.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I made view c without the tabs on the waist.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? This dress is already being made again. I LOVE this style on me. LOVE IT!!! My oldest daughter has also put her request in lol.
Conclusion: This dress is SUPERB! If you like this style GET THIS PATTERN.
Here are some additional pictures:
I really didn't have enough fabric for this dress. The polka dots didn't extend all the way to the selvage of the fabric so I ended up positioning the center back on the white part all the way down the dress. It works for me lol.
