Simplicity 2648 Goes Casual

I wore this dress last Friday and loved it.

 
I was tired when I got home and too lazy to buckle my shoes.  But I got pictures.

 
This dress is comfortable and easy to wear.
When I was making it - Carolyn asked what I was going to do at the waist.
I thought about adding ribbon, but the belt is a good choice.

 
Look - better side arms.  You can actually see the sides!



This time - I left the walking pleat out - I didn't need it.
I got a TON of compliments on this dress.
And - believe it or not - it's not too casual for everyday work wear.
 
Are you as shocked to hear that as I was?

  7. I really like that dress. I've always liked reverse fabrics and enjoy working with them. I have some right now that I bought a few years ago to make a jacket. They're spring colors and I should look for them in the closet. The timing is perfect. Keep up the great work.

  8. I like that a lot. The two contrasting fabrics make it look really elegant, and the belt is a perfect finish. The yellow cardigan also perked it up just enough! Great work!
