This isn’t really a review since I’ve made Simplicity 3503 before. The only things I did differently this time around are cutting the bodice at a size 6 and the skirt at a size 8. Also, the dress is completely lined with pink tricot. The fabric is a shimmery pink knit. It is sooo pretty! The dress is not hemmed–yet! But I just wanted to post some pictures since I’ve been talking so much about it.
I’ve got to wear this somewhere. It kind of occurred to me tonight that sewing could be a form of adult dress up! It’s so cool that we seamstresses have the ability to create any kind of look we want. We can fashion ourselves according to our moods. In this dress, I feel elegant and regal. Now I just need a ball to crash! 🙂
Update 10/21/2015: I wore this dress for the first time to an acquaintance’s book release gala last winter. It was so fun to get all dolled up in this dress, even if it was five years after I made it!
