As I was flipping through my closet to getting ready for work today I ran across this dress and it occurred to me that it had been photographed and never shared! I constructed it last month when I had clearly slipped into a houndstooth stitching theme. 2 dresses and outerwear constitute a theme right?
The pattern is Simplicity 1686 Amazing Fit Collection which is the pattern line intended for performing garment fit analysis as you sew.
I used the skirt pieces for a curvy figure.
Inner garment view:
I interfaced the center back zipper insertion area on the suiting to insure that it was a strong and stable as the satin till waistband and facing.
The 3/4 length sleeve is pretty cute, the cuff features a v-shaped cutout for detail and the sleeve head has a pleat at the shoulder. Unfortunately I decided to stand in a Wonder Woman pose for every one of these photos thus causing the sleeve fabric to buckle after the pleat due to my unnatural stance, rest assured the sleeve is pretty cute in a relaxed stance.
