Simple Shift on Horizon

       Decided to work on a simple short-sleeved shift for my next sewing project.  So, what’s it going to look like.  Its going to be a 1989 Simple Misses’ Dress from the Simplicity Pattern Sew Simple Collection.
Pattern selected–Simplicity Pattern– Sew Simple Pattern.  It is supposed to be a pullover dress with a tie belt.  Will be making a few changes to the pattern.              

Fabric selected—a burgundy and coral Hawaiian print polyester cotton.

Fabric cut out


9/11/11–Finished this dress and will be wearing it to work tomorrow.   I this pattern because it represents a simple versatile dress that perhaps, could be replicated in different fabrics.  I will not belt it so I added waist darts.  The neckline was a bit too wide so I inserted 2 1/4-inch tucks.  Coral and burgundy simple a-line shift
