|Simplicity 2588 - Green Dress version|
Thought this pattern was really lovely. Have decided to make the green version but thought maybe without sleeves would be nice too. I will cut the sleeves and make up my mind later. Always worries me when picking patterns - unsure at this stage if it will suit - but for a night dinner party, thought it would be fine.
Have always wanted a little black dress, but am unable to wear black - doesn't suit me at all. Found this fabric (Muted Check) at Tessuti Melbourne and thought it would be perfect for this pattern. It really is a bit different, and that's what I liked about it. My daughter approved, so that's a good start. Sorry about the photo - a bit out of focus.
I have 2 weeks in which to finish this dress. If it doesn't suit - well I do have a backup outfit, but would really like to wear this dress. Once I start, will feel a bit more confident.
