Navy Florals

I made a dress out of one of my favourite fabrics. It;s been in my grandma's stash for as long as i can remember, and pieces of it appear in my patchwork quilt. 
This started out as a skirt, but then morphed into a dress. I made it in January, but only hemmed and finished it this week to wear to a friend's wedding.

Pattern: Simplicity 2444
Size: 12
Fabric: Navy blue with dark floral, Mama's stash
Adjustments: 
  • Skirt pleats sewn down
  • Side zipper
  • front and back bodice with centre seams due to lack of fabric.
  • bodice lined in a dark plum colour
  • waist seam finished off with bias binding
  • narrow 1/2in hem
Notions: Navy blue invisible zip, plum coloured bias tape
Wear with: Pearls! I can easily see this as a winter dress as well
Make Again: the fit isn't spot on, but Simplicity 2444 is a TNT pattern. Will definitely line the bodice again, but probably wouldn't piece the bodice together
