Simplicity 3678 was one of Pattern Review‘s “best patterns of 2008″ (so clearly I’m behind the times again since it is now late 2010 and I’ve only just made it for the first time). It deserves kudos – it’s straightforward to make, comfortable and I think flattering.
Okay, that’s not the best photo of the back view; it actually hangs quite nicely if I don’t have my hands on my hips. Once again, I can’t remember where I bought the fabric, but I suspect Darn Cheap Fabrics for this one (although it could have been Spotlight). It it quite light and almost has a crepe-like feel. I’m planning to use this pattern a couple of times for summer dresses as well.
It doesn’t take much to figure out what I’ll be sewing when I head to Sewjourn again in a couple of weeks time – summer frocks in stretch fabrics!
