She Just Can't Get Enough Dress

Stash busting 2014:  Simplicity 2372

Fabric:    2.3 metre

Zipper:   22" invisible zipper

Thread:  1 spool polished off

How many versions of Simplicity 2372 do you think Mama R's closet can hold?

This one is number six and she has also asked for another one. I swear she just can't get enough of this dress pattern. She swears it is the most comfortable dress. Who am I to argue, as long as Mama R is happy all is good with me.  

The fabric is a navy satin crepe. The slippery factor makes this a challenging fabric to sew but moving the sewing machine from its usual spot helped with keeping the fabric from sliding off the table edge. There is enough to make another dress. Shhh!, don't tell her.   

Nothing new that I haven't cover in the other five versions, this one is made with the changes Mama R requested on the last few. She wanted the neckline changed so that it is not as wide as this one along with making the sleeves longer. The length has been shortened since Mama R is a petite sized lady. And that is about it. She wants a matching jacket to go with this and guess I better get to work.    

Happy Sewing!
