Vicky’s Summer Dress – Simplicity 3532

Meet Vicky… She is aged 13 and a bona fide dressmaker. This is her very first garment… I am so proud to be able to post this, she has tirelessly, every Wednesday after school (but with a fair amount of chatting and biscuit munching in between) stitched this fine cotton lawn dress and lined it with muslin.. Her hand stitching is effortlessly neat, a real natural. The fabric was her choice and it’s beautiful from Merchant & Mills. The pattern is from the pattern library at the studio…Simplicity 3532We went through a fair amount of adaptations while the project progressed, she didn’t like the cap sleeves so we modified the armholes … the hem was too long and got a rather hefty chop, she took it all within her stride and now rather than having a dress she wanted to put in the bin (out of shear frustration) ….. SHE LOVES IT! (As do I )
