I gotta keep it short and sweet until my wrist starts to feel better but I had to share my latest DIY because it is beyond comfy and so cute! The fabric is from Michael Levine from some time ago but the collection of CHIFFON FABRICS are really fab. Make sure to use the coupon MIMIJUNE10 to get 10% off! GIVEAWAY: I have two patterns to giveaway thanks to Simplicity so leave a comment and I will choose two names next week!
Pattern Description: New Look 6207
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done? Yes
Were the instructions easy to follow? This is a really easy to follow pattern and the instructions are clear. I didn't use them but did read them to review.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I knew when I saw it that I was going to make several because I am a maxi fan and especially love the loose fitting flowy ones.
Fabric Used: Printed Poly Chiffon, Rayon Lining & Pro-Sheer Lightweight Interfacing
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I did not want the ties for the back so I just didn't attach them, I like the way the dress falls without them.
Would you sew it again? Yep
Would you recommend it to others? Yes, the only thing about the dress is that it has you do a ton of hand sewing on the bands so if you don't like hand sewing then you may want to attach them the way you would bias binding which is what I did. The only area that did not work was around the front and back neck band but there is little hand sewing in those areas.
Talk to you guys later this week and thank you for the well wishes and emails!
