A Quick Dress - Simplicity 3775
Thank you all for the lovely compliments on my latest vintage blouse! I am glad that I was able to do such a fine fabric gift a justice. This one is quickly becoming one of my favorites. Not all the blouses have been instant winners, but I do have favorites!
Now that the weather is getting cooler, I've started to look at the children's wardrobes and see what is needed to fill in the gaps from things outgrown or outworn. My daughter needed one dress for church for this fall and winter. I bought a fairly nice knit from Jo-ann's several months ago and put it away in the closet for this fall. After asking her, she wanted another Simplicity 3775, this time with round neck and full sleeves. BTW, this is the third time I've made this pattern this fall, it's practically a TNT! (See, I do have TNT's; they're for my daughter!)
I cut out the dress Sunday afternoon. When I was done, I went to my computer and there was a post from Kristine, who made up the same pattern in a different knit print! Take a look at hers - she look fabulous in it! I totally agree on her assessment of this pattern: effortless! It is a very easy pattern with no zippers or buttons at all. I could easily make the dress in a day.
Between the serger and coverstitch machine, this dress was really easy and has a great finish, as seen in the hem below:
This dress is also effortless in that it is easy to wear and easy to accessorize, too. Just pop it on, find some cute shoes and jewelry and go!
Next up: Purple velour and Burda. Should be fun.
Parting Shot: Cat vs. Coverstitch Machine. I'll let you figure out who lost and was promptly launched from the sewing table.
