Simplicity 1796

Simplicity 1796,view A, fabric from JoAnn: a poly crepe of some sort.
I made this dress last August for my trip to Paris, and wore it out to dinner at Le Train Bleu.
Boy, was it hot that evening.....much different than today's 14 degrees F! I haven't worn it since, as I needed to revisit those neckline gathers. So I ripped back some of the neckline binding, took out the gathers and resewed them. Much better :-)
I love this pattern and the many creative options that are available with it. I've already pulled fabric for another version.....thinking Spring!

    1. Thanks, Lori! ...quick and easy..... :-)

  2. I can see why you love this pattern you dress from last August looks lovely. Very classy looks comfortable to wear

  3. I'm about to try and make this pattern in view B. Did you need to do an FBA or is there enough ease for a larger bust with the gathers? Any help would be appreciated.
