Daisy Fresh Simplicity 2886 version 2

In my previous post I mentioned that the Blue Tulip print dress made to Simplicity 2886 with my own personal variations was one of my favourites whilst on my cruise. So… I made another one. This time I used a fresh Green background “daisy” print from Fabricland teamed with co-ordinating Green and White Gingham fabric. The dress went together quickly as I had already made adjustments to the pattern. I hand picked the centre back zip and added a tie belt at the side seams to improve the fit. The contrast gingham at the neckline means that there are already two layers of fabric so I decided to bind the neckline and armholes with gingham bias binding. Made to a finished width of just 1/4″ it was subtle and effective. I wore the dress yesterday when visiting Fabricland in Salisbury and received many compliments. Just right to perk up my confidence!
