Pattern: Simplicity 3874 (view B)
Size: Size 8 from shoulder to high hip, out to size 12 downward (I probably only need to go out to a 10 here, but I sit a lot in my job, so I wanted the extra room for comfort)
Fabric: Brown floral print polyester silky - bought in England last summer when I was on vacation.
Comments: I have made this dress a couple of times in the past and I was quite taken with it. So, when I was rummaging through my stash and came across this polyester woven, I immediately thought of S3874. This seems to be the pretty much the only pattern for which I use polyester fabrics.
As I have explained in the past, I tend to have a high thermostat and poly fabrics can be hot and uncomfortable for me. However, dresses tend to have enough openness and opportunity for air flow, that I can generally get away with a poly dress during spring and fall when the weather is cooler.
The last two times I made this dress, I forgot to make a broad back adjustment and the bodice was a tad restrictive. This time I actually remembered and what a difference it makes!
As with the other versions, I didn't line the dress (the pattern doesn't call for it anyhow). This is an overheating-avoidance decision, being the hot tamale that I am.
Conclusion: Another great version of a TNT dress. Will I make it again? Highly likely!
