Simplicity 9136

Hello and welcome to my blog! Today I am sharing this dress that I made using Simplicity 9136!! I made this dress because I came to a decision a while back to change up my style because my clothes were not looking they way that I preferred them to look, and as I looked into different dress styles, this style caught my eye!! I absolutely love it!! The fabric that I used to make it is 100% Cotton with images of lemons and stripes on it!! I thought it looked very summery, unique, cute and flirty!!! You can also WATCH the full video review on YouTube by clicking here! Below you will find pictures of this beautiful dress! I haven't felt good in my clothes in a while so I felt really happy and proud while wearing this!! You will also find a full pattern review below the pictures!! Front - below

Pattern Review

Pattern Number: Simplicity 9136 Pattern Description: Misses' dress with gathers and raglan sleeve variations Pattern Sizing: 6-24 Size that I Cut: 22, but should have cut a 20 Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope? Yes Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I like the gathers in the skirt, the raglan sleeves and pockets. The one thing that I didn’t care for is the bias tape finishing for the neckline. Although it’s an easy way to finish a garment, I prefer a facing but I didn’t feel like drafting one. Fabric Used: 100% Cotton with images of lemons and stripes on it. I thought it looked very summery and unique. Fabric Purchased: Hobby Lobby Pattern Alterations or any design changes you made: Yes! The dress was very long once I put it on. I cut five inches off of the bottom of the skirt, and I used an additional 1.5 inches to create the hem, so that’s 6.5 inches that I took away from the skirt. Would I sew it again? Yes, but I would size down. This was very, very easy. Did you do anything different/special to make this project? Yes, I used my blind hem foot to create the hem. This was my very first time using this foot and I think it came out to be spectacular!! Would you recommend it to others? Yes!!! In my opinion, this is a very fun, casual and flirty dress! So I will go ahead and enter a clip and a few pictures so you can see the dress in full effect! Well, that is it for my overview on Simplicity 9136. This is a very beginner friendly dress to make so if you like it, I sure hope that you try it out!
