i am a huge fan of the current trend of exaggerated sleeve lengths. I might have been a fan before this was even a real trend! I used Simplicity pattern S1059…. as a starting point for this dress. I made the following changes:
- Shortened the length and added a hem band
- Adjusted the sleeve width and length
- Added the pleated sleeve detail
- Added epaulets and arm wraps with buttons
The fabric is a double cotton fabric from Fabric Mart Fabrics that has been in my stash for a while.
What do you think about this dress? Let me know your thoughts.
