Is it wrong to make a dress because you fell in love with a pair of shoes? After seeing Sewl Sista #1 version of the Simplicity 3799, I knew that I had to make that dress to go with my new strappy, cork heels.
Fortuntely, Hobby Lobby had a Simplicity pattern sale so I was able to get it immediately. I sifted through my material and settled on some fabric originally intended to make the Hot Pattern Cha-Cha-Cha dress. When I purchased the material, I knew that I would be a bit short (I got the rest that was on the bolt) – unfortuantely, it wasn’t enough to make the Hot Patterns dress, but was perfectly suited for the Simplicity (with some left over)!
The dress itself was amazingly easy to put together. The directions were simple, there were just a few pieces, and I was able to whip this garment up in an afternoon! Since I had finished it before the wedding, I asked my family which dress I should wear – this one was the big winner. I think the fabric made this dress stand out – and the style was extremely comfortable to be doing lots of sitting, standing and dancing in!
