Simplicity 2469

I can’t tell you how fun this little ditty was to make!! I made about three of them. Two dresses, one top and matching pants! Yes, it was Fabmo samples which is why I could only get the dresses and not the darling matching jacket. But hey, no complaints here. Just loved this little dress. I can’t even remember the last time I sewed with elastic!???? Oh, yes I do I made hair scrunchy’s back in 199somethings? Hmmm. Yes, and I even still have a few left!! And I have almost worn out the elastic. But that is quite the mileage. So I was slightly intimidated at first (what was I thinking……I hadn’t event attempted button holes…….not fun!), but like all riders once you get back in the saddle, 5th gear comes effortlessly.

One thing that you will notice on this pattern that I wasn’t thrilled with following was the gathered shoulder straps. For some reason, it seemed like it would be more comfortable to the intended to not have a knotted bump. And hence I left out!! But feel free to design however your heart desires.

Happy Sewing!
