Always a Project | Simplicity 2305

Always a Project | Simplicity 2305

by Rachel Garza

If we're connected on Facebook, you may have seen that I completed Simplicity 2305 last week!

This dress has been a thorn in my side. I started it a couple of months ago, but wasn't pleased with the direction it was going in.

It was a SUPER simple pattern, but I ran into some material issues.

I selected a beautiful cotton/silk blend that was very lightweight and shimmery. I ran into trouble with the interfacing that I used. It was a mid-weight and proved to be too heavy for this fabric.

So... the neckline puckered a bit and the banded sleeves felt a bit constricting.
