I fell in love with this pattern as soon as I saw it. This is Simplicity S9175. Here is the pattern. Simplicity S9175.
I purchased the fabric for this dress from Nick of Time Textiles. Here is the link to their website. https://nickoftimefabric.com/ It is a liverpool knit, which I have used before and really like. And the color! The color is awesome. It looks red here, but it is really a brick color.
This is a very simple pattern and would be great for a beginner. I cut a size large view A. I could have gotten away with a medium, but it can easily be adjusted if need be. The pattern only contains 8 pieces total. I had to cut almost all of them. I had to cut 6. The dress came together very easily and quickly and you could easily make a couple of these in no time. You can’t go wrong with this pattern or this dress. I like the pattern because of the style of the dress, and the neck. It’s simple, but versatile at the same time.
The style of this dress is magnificent. It’s simple lines make it a perfect dress just the way it is. Just slap on some shoes and go. That’s what I absolutely love about dresses. That’s the whole outfit. A few accessories, or not, some footwear, and then dash out the door. It’s that simple. You could always pair this with a duster, a short jacket, denim jacket, or even a cardigan. Or, you could just leave it alone and wear it alone perfectly.
I did not make any modifications to my dress, but you could make modifications if you wanted to. You could play with the length and also play with the sleeve length as well. If you really wanted to make some changes, you could add ruffles to the sleeves, the bottom, or both. This would also make a great belted tunic.
That’s a wrap for now, but I can’t wait to show you a new project, pattern, or DIY something. Thank you for allowing me to share this simple but beautiful dress with you.
