So this actually isn’t the most recent dress I made (that would be my wedding dress, actually). But I finally got to wear it for the first time to our friend’s wedding in January. Thus, it has now been relegated to “OK to wear to work” – especially with the crazy hot weather we’ve been having.
This is actually the 2nd time I’ve made this pattern (Simplicity 1652). I adore the back detail and the dress is just ridiculously flattering and fits well. Also – pockets! What’s not to love? I decided to make this one sleeveless as to ensure it’s not completely identical to my other dress (gotta mix it up a little bit, am I right?).
I can’t lie, this print is simply divine. The fabric is almost too lightweight – I probably should have done a full lining (instead of only lining the bodice). Though this way it is really perfect for those sweltering hot summer days! And even though I wore this on a Thursday – it was just fabulous frock Friday 1 day early.
