Here starts the mass posting of projects completed over the summer…. let’s start with this dress, Simplicity 2371:
I figured I needed more simple dresses, so here it is. I liked that it didn’t have any darts or gathering, which I often tire of doing. Instead it has stitched pleats at the front up by the shoulder, plus a belt. It looks like a hospital gown without the belt. I used a pink cotton with metallic gold pinstripes I found in Miami for 2 bucks a yard last year. I’ll show you the pictures before I discuss further:
I know people hate headless shots, but I wasn’t having a good face day. Anyway, these pics made me even more aware of my jacked up posture and obvious swayback. Other than that, I like the dress.
