Sleeveless Dress - Simplicity 1314 C.
Sarah Liz. I am not sure if I followed July's theme, but I made a dress that I need at the moment 😊 I'm glad that finished just before the end of the month and wore it yesterday on our visit to Tokyo Disneyland. Beside this dress, I also made two more dresses to wear during summer holiday and I'd love to share with you in later post.
I was following all measurements chart based on the pattern and I used size 8 (B cup). And surprised that the dress was too big for me, especially in the upper bodices. I didn't make a muslin, so I just cut/shorten the shoulder 5 cm (as shown in the picture below) and made a new neckline. I used the armhole as it is and the fit was okay.
The armholes and neckline finished by folding the seam allowance 1 cm and sew directly as it is. I didn't fuse the fusible tape this time and hope they will be okay after wearing and washing later.
I omitted the center back zipper because I used knit fabric with a lot of elastane.
I like the overall look of the finished dress, simple design, comfortable and I can wear it in summer or mild winter with cardigan and leggings.
Here is the back view of the dress, I'm not so sure if I like the way I match the prints but for sure only me seeing the imperfection, the busy prints hide it away.
As I mentioned above, we visited Tokyo Disneyland and had a lot fun yesterday. And glad that knit dress keeps me cool and comfy in the middle of crowd and high heat 37C. You can see below that I was so sweating and still keep a big smile on my face 😁😁
We visited Nippori fabric town and some more places in Tokyo and Kamakura as well, I posted some photos in my Instagram if you are interested to see.
Until next...... ❤
