I used Simplicity 2851 c. 1949. This is the 4th time I've made up this pattern! (1) (2) (3)
I love the kimono sleeves, cute collar and flattering shape!
If you have a really great pattern, you can make it up several times without it looking too much like the same dress. Different materials, the use of print vs. solids and adding optional details really changes up the look.
Of course, chopping off your hair also helps to diversify the look! lol!
I really do adore this new dress! It's perfect for work and oh, so comfortable!
What's your favorite tried and true sewing pattern?
