I have had this Project Runway Simplicity 2694 pattern since I first started to sew & I thought it was about time to make it up.
I used this soft modern cotton fabric that I also bought 2 years ago.....its amazing how much fabric stash I have being a nouveau seamstress!
The pattern was easy to follow & the only changes I made were not to line the bodice as this cotton was thick (also a little lazy), I added an extra line of gathering at the back as it was too big. According to my measurements I was a size 14 in the bodice but I cut a 12 & it was still gaping in the back. I cut a 10 for the skirt. The side zipper is kinda of cool too....seems to give me better support in the bodice.
I also used my serger for the hem & left it at that. I really like the fit of this pattern & will def be making more halter dresses!
P.S. I have joined a sewing site that I now feel better qualified to submit...... Pattern Review.... & this is my first review!
Sew you later!
