Project Runway 2694

I have had this Project Runway Simplicity 2694 pattern since I first started to sew & I thought it was about time to make it up.

I used this soft modern cotton fabric that I also bought 2 years ago.....its amazing how much fabric stash I have being a nouveau seamstress!

The pattern was easy to follow & the only changes I made were not to line the bodice as this cotton was thick (also a little lazy), I added an extra line of gathering at the back as it was too big.  According to my measurements I was a size 14 in the bodice but I cut a 12 & it was still gaping in the back.  I cut a 10 for the skirt.  The side zipper is kinda of cool too....seems to give me better support in the bodice.

I also used my serger for the hem & left it at that.   I really like the fit of this pattern & will def be making more halter dresses!

 P.S.  I have joined a sewing site that I now feel better qualified to submit...... Pattern Review.... & this is my first review!

Sew you later!
