My favourite dress pattern for this season


Yes, I’ve done it again. I’ve been to Abakhan today in search of some fabric I need for the Gift Exchange and ended up with a pattern as well.

I thought I’ll just have a look in the catalogue in the shop. Then I’ve seen it, so I’ve gone to sales assistant asking them how to do I order one (have not done this  before in a shop – usually I buy them online). She told me that they have some patterns in the back and if I give her the number and size she’ll have a look. She went back and when she came back she trick me, letting me to believe they did not have it, but then she gave it to me. Oh, I was so happy!!!!

I’ve seen in on many blog reviews for the new season from US and on the American Simplicity site. I did not manage to find it on the UK sites easily. I managed to  find it on Jaycotts site but by time I added postage, I was not sure I wanted to buy it online. So you  can imagine my surprise when they had it at Abakhan.

So This is the pattern:

S1802 Misses' Dresses Cynthia Rowley  Simplicity Pattern

I have already thought about also matching the bodice with  a pencil skirt  as well as making it into a blouse. The possibilities are endless. I will start with making a muslin to get the best fit of the bodice Smile.

I don't really like talking about myself. But, I love sewing and after reading a lot of blogs on the internet about it, I've decided to give it a go as well. I am Romanian born, but live in the UK. I am a bit selfish when it comes to sewing. I tend to make stuff more for myself. Others have to go through a lot of torture in order for me to make something. My mum did it twice. Well I only wanted to make the dresses fit her perfectly. And in the end they looked great.

  1. I absolutely love this pattern, it is not the kind of dress that would look good on me, but I love it anyway. Can’t wait to see it made up. Hurry!
