Simplicity 2648

I like the look of this Amazing Fit pattern, really suitable for work.  I have high hopes for this pattern since I should be able to easily tailor the sizing to fit.  But I'm going to make it first in muslin just in case...!

Overall I'm pretty happy with the result, it was simple to make and took about 12 hours all up.  My measurements were for a 12, but when I made the muslin trial it was way too big, so cut an 8 in good fabric.  Black doesn't photograph very well, but I made view C which is the same as above picture.


  1. Why not make the dress in a nice cheap fabric instead of muslin. You will probably make a good job of it and then you will have a dress to wear instead of throwing it away because you have made it in muslin and can't wear it.

  2. Yes I could, however it's just for a quick trial to check size and any difficult parts of the instructions. I also don't use any zippers or buttons etc.. as that keeps cost down.
