Grey Dress

Timeline: September or October 2014

Patterns Used: Simplicity 1586 (little to no alterations)

Fabrics: grey poly-cotton suiting from Joann (really soft)

My Favorite Part: the fabric. It is so freaking soft which makes it wonderful to wear. I made it for speech and debate competitions where I’m stuck in formal dress and heels for twelve-hour-long competitions so comfort is definitely a must-have.

Techniques and firsts: … nothing? I think it’s my second invisible zipper and there’s really nothing technical about it at all.

My sister is the model in these pictures. They were taken at a tournament, about halfway through the day (which is why the seams aren’t laying that nicely).
