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.

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! photo
