Pattern: Simplicity 3678 (view C)
Size: S3678 comes in sizes 8 to 24 - I made size 8.
Fabric: Brown print rayon lycra knit from Lucy's Fabrics.
Comments: I really loved the scoopneck version of this dress when I first saw this pattern. So, I rooted around in my stash to find a knit to use. I finally settled on this soft, drapey rayon/lycra knit I got from Lucy's Fabric a while back.
This dress went together easily. I was able to cut out and sew up the dress in one day. Sew on Sunday afternoon, wear on Monday morning. Talk about instant gratification!
This dress is comfortable, yet stylish. I plan on making several more versions to augment my wardrobe. I love a good dress - pop it on in the morning and go!
Conclusion: The day I wore this dress to work, I got some compliments from my students - I guess I'm still remotely hip and happening!!
