Next up-Simplicity 3744

I started the pattern adjusting for Simplicity 3744. I am so tickled that this dress comes in B, C, and D cups. NO FBA! Adjustments needed are the forward shoulder, swayback and adjusting the underarm for the sleeveless view.

This is the Black White pattern that got a lot of attention on Simplicity website causing the pattern to be sold out quickly. I will do a b/w version. But this one is going to be green/white. Many people have noted that this pattern has a 60's feel. The fabric I am using is a polyester that I believe may have been from that era. Even if not, I think it will be perfect.

The fabric was sent to me by my sewing buddy, Carolyn-Diary of a Sewing Fanatic. I remember her post on this fabric and I made a comment to the effect that I loved it. She asked how much yardage I wanted and within the next week I had three yards! Well it has aged enough in my stash now to become this dress.

Carolyn, when you read this, I hope you will recognize the fabric!

Here are photos of the pattern and fabric.


  1. Ohmygosh Linda! I totally forgot that I gave you that fabric! I still have several yards of it left since I only made a skirt from this. it was gifted to me and I just don't have the heart to get rid of it so it has been languishing in my fabric closet waiting for another opportunity to peek its head out!
