My adoration of Michael Miller's script fabric from his Antiquity line is now all sewn up in this dress.
This is the second time I have used this pattern (Simplicity 2246). My first attempt was for View B and this dress is View C and my definite favorite.
I love the little puffed sleeves, just enough gathering to make the cutest little puff you've ever seen.
I love how the darts fit me. I was so concerned I'd have to make some sort of adjustment for my small bust, an adjustment which I really didn't have the slightest idea how to make, but I didn't need one at all!
I love the tips on how to make the darts lay flat. I was really concerned about the possibility of a pucker at the end of them, especially in the back, but there's no pucker. yay!
I love the skirt. It's flat in the front on either side of the button placket and then gathered the rest of the way around. Easy to attach and flattering.
I would probably love the collar if I hadn't sewn it on upside-down (one and a half hours of botched work!!), but I think only you and me will know about that. I'm pretty sure no one else will really notice.
PS. My original post about my plans for this dress is here. I still want to make one in bold colors like I originally intended... maybe with some simple bias tape around the collar. :)
