Oh, how I love this dress! This is the newest version of Simplicity 3673 that I finished at the end of March. This past weekend we were finally able to get pictures and I'm pretty excited to share it with you.
I have wanted to make something with a tongue-in-cheek reference to my mad love of sewing for quite some time. Showcasing the quote below was a priority and I cut the bodice so it would stand out:
The quotes in the fabric are hilarious! I am especially fond of this one: 'Look at the way she's dressed! She must be throwing Harry's money around!' Clearly I must look as though I'm tossing my husband's money to the winds, but little do they know I've saved money through my 'sewing know-how.' Hee hee!
I used my favourite lapped zipper tutorial and inserted an obnoxious super-hero yellow zip in honour of Oona. I love the high-waisted style and even though it's a bit time-consuming to sew 8 darts in total, the effect is totally worth it.
