Rouge Graphic Dress Simplicity 1877 View B

Because I spent so much of my time adjusting Simplicity 1877  for my body it was only rational to create both views. View B has a pleated and gathered skirt in lieu of the flounced skirt, but the same bodice. 
Yes, there are flounces... on the shoulders.
This crazy print fabric is also a crepe de chine.  
Per the pattern directions I left this dress version unlined, which yielded an incredibly lightweight breezy dress. My seam allowances were overlocked for a clean finish. 
The neckline was finished with a self- fabric bias strip. 
Inner neckline finishing:
 Inner Garment View Front and Back:

This version of the dress has pockets.


  1. I love how you always take pictures of the inside of what you make.

  2. Lovely details and the fabric is beautiful.

  3. Oh, I like this one very much. The ruffle at the shoulder is a nice detail, and I like that it's made a bit more subtle by the print. Beautiful construction, as always. You've been on a roll lately!

  4. Stellar dress! Your workmanship is better than RTW anyday.

  5. This is such a pretty dress, you do the best work.

  6. Gorgeous. What a fantasic print, you look beautiful in this.
