Today's Pattern Story: Simplicity 1194


Floral dress: “I’d like to call today’s meeting of the Pissed-Off Jumper-Wearing Club to order.”

Black dress: “Hell no!”

Green dress: “Y’all go on ahead. I’m just gonna stare at things until they ignite.”

  1. This weekend I was working on a shirtdress- Butterick 5846. I love the pleat & gather details on the bodice. It doesn’t work with a large print, though, because those are 1″ pleats and it seriously breaks the pattern of the fabric I was working with. And a circle skirt!

    Made me think of you & your eternal quest for shirtdresses.


  2. Ha!! Makes you wonder how they even agreed to meet in the first place. BTW are those sleeves on green dress, or has she laced herself up with ribbon like a ballet slipper?


  3. I like that floral has loaded her day dress down with heavy rhinestone earrings and bracelets : ) Black Dress is like, “Well f$#* you…I’ve got a SCARF!”


  4. Momentarily confused as in UK, ‘jumper’ means ‘sweater’, but I got there in the end.

    Yes, quite a sullen bunch. Can’t think why with those lovely square necklines! – my favourite.


  5. Cool patterns. My girl makes wedding and other styles of dresses…sometimes she will use a Simplicity pattern, or just do her own. It’s amazing how these dresses come into being just from a load of fabric and a focussed mind!
