The Hundred Dresses: Day 24

by Erin on June 26, 2013

I said there would be a lot of Simplicity 1577s this week, didn’t I? Here’s another one:

It’s from this Yuwa fabric that I bought back in 2009.I probably held on to it for at least two years before it became this dress.

I’m not happy with the collar. I know there’s some kind of undercutting trick you can do to keep this from happening, but I can never seem to find it. Does anyone have a link?

Here’s a fairly fuzzy view of the front:

And the side zip, this is a strong B, I think:

Back view, inadequate pressing:

And closeup back view … I almost got those stripes matched! (Actually, I am pretty sure this was inadvertent.)

I love this dress but man oh man, are those colors hard to match. They’re all slightly off from any cardigans I actually have, so I end up wearing this dress only when it’s warm enough to go sans cardigan. (I do have one beige cardigan that matches, but … eh, beige.)

The scissors print still makes me happy … I’d love to have another scissors-print dress, maybe one with a more scattered layout? Haven’t seen any scissors fabric that I like as much as this, though.
