Sewing

Help me choose a pattern (aka being indecisive sucks)

Well as you know we’re in the new house, all is unpacked and yesterday we had our nearest and dearest over for a housewarming. So lovely to have our friends over and the next generation ( not star trek – just our mates awesome kids).

Now the dust has settled I’m in the mood to SEW!

I took a little trip out to my local John Lewis last week and picket up this gorgeous fabric for half price but now I’m stuck on what to make with it.

A dress? Yes, but which one?

These are the three I have to choose from:

Simplicity 7702

Butterick 2604

 

(also considering making the coat in the heavy gold satin I brought back from Vegas)

(with sleeves)


I’m favouring the Simplicity or Vogue at the moment, the Butterick is gorgeous but it’s quite a similar shape to other dresses I’ve made in the last year and I’d like to try something different.

Any feedback/help in making my mind up will be appreciated. What would you make?

  1. Of the latter two, I like the Simplicity, but I generally prefer a lower neckline. I think the collar on the Vogue would get lost in that print (which I love, by the way!).

  2. Of the latter two, I like the Simplicity, but I tend to prefer a lower neckline. If you use the Vogue I’d leave off the collar. I think it would get lost in that print (which I love, by the way).

  3. I would go for the Simplicity pattern as well. The fabric pattern is so extravagant, I fear the Butterick would just be a little too much.

  4. simplicity as it’ll suit that pattern best and the more simple dress style will be better to match accessories too.

  5. I adore the vogue pattern but i think a plain fabric would show the shape and cut of it better, whereas the simplicity would suit the fantastic pattern of your fabric – whichever you choose, looking forward to seeing the results
