It Finally Happened.

Wow, it finally happened. Simplicity 2372 is now an out-of-print pattern. I can't recommend it anymore since, well, it's no longer available on the Simplicity website. It's a real gem. If you're lucky enough to stumble across it over on Etsy or Ebay, I would suggest grabbing it. It does seem rare to find coordinate patterns now-a-days. Here is one more version of the dress.  


The fabric is a 100% polyester print left-over from an earlier, much-earlier, project. It feels great to make something else with this fabric.  Even though I'm not one to love sewing polyester, the colours in this piece of fabric are perfect for the season.  


The Stats  

Fabric:  2 metres 

Interfacing:  0.3 metres of fusible interfacing

Zipper:  55 cm invisible zipper

Additional Tools & Supplies:  Cutting table, silk pins, measuring tape, ruler, tailor's chalk, sewing machine, invisible zipper foot, zipper foot, blind hem foot, pin cushion, scissors, serger, thread, thread clippers, iron and ironing board.  

Happy Sewing!
