This dress has been on my to make list for a while now. As I mentioned yesterday trying to keep up with Sew Weekly and play along with Project Run and Play has been a bit of a challenge. The flip side of that is that usually if I wait long enough the things I want to make will fit into a Sew Weekly Challenge. That is how I ended up making this dress last week.
Simplicity 2503 view F just with the sleeves cut short. I made a 14 all over (usually I would taper to a 16 at the waist for a knit) with about an inch added to the bottom of the bust area and only 0.25in seams for the waist section. I had planned to use the maxi length skirt but the fabric turned out to be way to thin for that unless I wanted to wear a slip. I cut the extra length off the skirt and used it to make a top layer. This provides enough coverage to wear it alone and I think makes a nice design element.
still available and still on sale. Just remember its thin and plan accordingly.
