Simplicity 2212 Project Runway Pattern

I had a lot of fun with this pattern.  It was very simple and easy to put together, the fun part for me was sketching out a pattern design before I began.  I am slowly learning how to design my own pieces and manipulate patterns.  I was looking to create a new salsa dress and saw this gorgeous flowery linen fabric.

I decided to make a purple belt out of suede fabric to bring out the purples and blues in the dress fabric and use a contrasting purple thread.  The pattern advised to use boning but I found the interfacing to provide the necessary stiffness.  I had to make a few fitting adjustments but overall very happy with how this simple pattern turned out.  🙂

  1. Your dress is beautiful, nice job! I’m about to make the strapless version and was wondering how you found the sizing to run. Thanks!
