Easy Breezy Shift Dress - Simplicity 2938 Revisited


After finishing S2692, I felt energized to finish another summer dress. This is a repeat of S2938 made two years ago. This time, I made my usual FBA, no back darts, and added a belt.

I followed the Threads tutorial for making your own bias tape.

Note on the shoes - I really wanted some of those new strappy galdiator sandals to wear with this dress, but didn't find the "right" pair for the "right" price.

The fabric is from JoAnn's which I got on sale for about six bucks per yard. It's floaty, soft with some gloss. I really like to colors in the print and the feel of this fabric.

This dress is easy and a great wardrobe builder. I may make one more this summer.

Coming soon: More dresses, of course; but I really need to finish up the tops and pants that already cut and ready to sew.

Happy Sewing!

  8. Just found your blog and your thyroid post, which was very informative. Thanks for sharing. My mother also had a goiter when I was about 9 and they said at that time that Chicago was in the 'goiter belt' - not enough iodine in the soil. But back to sewing. Have you checked out a great neighborhood group in Chgo? http://sewchicago.wordpress.com/
    My ASG guild in Madison WI is getting together with them in August. Might be a nice fit for you. Wishing you the best, Lorel
