|Simplicity 2584: Highly Recommended by CJgal!||By DianeSev on 10/7/11 11:42 AM
Today we're featuring Simplicity: 2584 (Misses Dress, Tunic and Headband - Cynthia Rowley Collection) as reviewed by CJgal.
Pictured: Simplicity 2584
CJgal made this dress for the second time, reviewed it here for the first time and says that it's very easy to make.
She used a slinky matte jersey knit, which she says is not the easiest fabric to sew. She also found that using a stretchy fabric makes the garment truer to size, but a cotton with less give would need to be sized up.
She did make some adjustments, taking up the length quite a bit and making the neckline higher because it dipped too low. The knit fabric made everything a bit more loose.
But she absolutely loves the neckline, and to emphasize it, she used one of the decorative stitches on her new machine, her Baby Lock:Elizabeth BL 200A [Read her sewing machine review].
She says it's definitely a great comfy dress to add to your collection!
Highly recommended! Thanks, CJgal!
