60s Dress

The Simplicity I finished recently has to be one of the easiest patterns out there. I managed to make it the wrong size though. Or, it’s just not meant for my shape. I don’t feel comfortable in it, so I have not worn it out. It is also a bit see through, which doesn’t help matters. I’m not quite sure what to do with the rest of the fabric.

I like the way it looks in the pictures, but in person it does not feel right. Has anyone else had that issue?

Simplicity 1607: Striped Jiffy Dress

  • Size: 8
  • Fabric: White and marigold striped fabric
  • Lining: None
  • Notions: Invisible zipper, crocheted collar
  • Adjustments: No adjustments to the pattern
  • Would I recommend it to other sewers: Absolutely. The construction is super simple. I hardly looked at the instructions (except for the facings which are always confusing for me). The shape is flattering, as well.
