#13 Dress

#13 Dress. This is from Simplicity pattern 2281 from Cynthia Rowley designs. I love her designs. I have most of her patterns. On this particular one, I can actually say, “I hacked it.” I dropped the bodice to the waistline and completely eliminated the midriff. On the back bodice I lowered the center seam for a longer back opening. I also replaced the entire skirt for a beautiful flowing “A” line skirt. No gathering at the waist. I love the way the fabric of this dress flows as I walk. I made about three of these dresses. As I wear them, I will post them. They are timeless. Feels like heaven. I’m such a pattern hacker. Sorry, Cynthia Rowley. I love your designs so much, I just had to make them my own. I’ve used this pattern over and over again. On this dress, I used 3 out of 17 pieces. The top of this dress is spectacular. I love the way it enhances a woman’s shoulder line. The pictures were taken this afternoon at Cotali Mar Restaurant in the North End, 1178 Acushnet Ave, New Bedford, MA. Beautiful place, great food and wonderful people.
