Dress Success!

Okay, number 3 of the 5 dresses I've made recently is one I almost forgot about!! I only forgot because it's a summery dress that I made in the winter. I wore it once in the winter, styled with a cardi, a cute belt and tall brown boots, but I really like it better on its own. This is Simplicity 2591 and this is the third time I've made it. I think it's safe to say, this is a go-to pattern for me. I love every version. Here's my latest:
You may remember my Easter dress from last year:
And I made this version at the tail end of last summer, so it only got worn once. I love this vintage cotton, though, so I can't wait to pull it out again!
I highly recommend this great pattern!! There are lots of version of this on and on Flickr and I have yet to see one that didn't look fabulous! The pockets are the best part, for sure, but I also really love how it fits and flatters the waistline. I got lots of compliments on my newest version at church yesterday!

Kelby loves to be in on my photo shoots :)
Happy sewing! And, Happy Monday :)


  1. All of the versions look adorable! I'm definitely going to put this pattern on my wish list.

  2. Very flattering silhouette on you. Lovely!

  3. Great pattern. They all turned out wonderful. I think I like the Easter dress the best.

  4. the dresses you sew for yourself turn out perfect !!!
