Simplicity 2369 - Reprise

Here's the dress I finished yesterday.

The pattern is one of those reliable ones where the pictures on the pattern envelope are what you get.  No fuss, no muss.  Consequently, there's not too much to say about it!

I made this before.  This time I used the shorter skirt and longer sleeves.

I used one of those soft rayon knits; you know - the ones that stretch longer and eventually pill and look like crap.  But before then, they are soft and luscious, and supremely comfortable to wear.  This is, consequently, a dress for only one season, or with luck two.

I love the print.

There is a CB seam, but it's pretty much invisible.



My pattern review is here.

  1. Your dress looks great! I hear ya on those rayons. There are good ones that last, but there's far more that don't. Glad to hear it's a reliable pattern since it's somewhere in my queue.

  12. I wonder if you would have any luck removing the pilling from the rayon knit with a bronze wire clothing brush. I take care of all kinds of matting and pilling of fiber with one of those, and nothing has resisted being corrected by the brush. The pattern of the fabric is a good one I think. I like the way the back fits you.

  14. You are the one who got me to buy this pattern in the first place! This is a great version. I am sewing some of those rayons right now. Gorgeous, but I know they will pill all too quickly.
