My daughter is home for a wedding and her birthday ,which is Tuesday. Of course that called for a new dress.
The pattern she's been wanting me to make is Simplicity 2369 so I made a combination of Views A,B and C
Here it is:
And here are some detail shots. The dress is not a wrap dress but just looks that way.
It is fastened with two long ties tied in a bow,
Tamara really likes the loose flowing sleeves.

The fabric is a poly/lycra. I used no interfacing and the only notions I used were thread and Steam-a-Seam to hold the hems before straight stitching them.The whole dress including the cutting out took about six hours to make and was sewn entirely by machine.
This is an easy project. The dress looks like the pattern envelope and the neckline isn't too low. I would highly recommend this pattern!
I made a size10 top and size 12 bottom and the dress was a perfect fit. Tamara declared it her new favorite dress.Here she is wearing it to a wedding party.
Here we are together . I'm wearing this dress made last spring.
I love having a daughter and it is very special and makes me very happy to have her home for the first time in 10 years for her birthday .
Check in with me in a few days for a fun and really cute top which I designed myself!.
Hope you've had time to sew this weekend!
