So, as I mentioned, Simplicity very recently sent me some patterns and encouraged me to share them with readers in a giveaway. Who was I to say no? So much fun, choosing patterns for you.
I can genuinely testify to the wondrousness of this pattern. Princess seams make bodice fitting much easier, there are some nice details to make construction interesting – ickle bow, pretty pockets, nice collar – and the shape is just flattering as can be. There’s also great potential for piping! Maybe most importantly, there are separate pattern pieces for different cup sizes. Simplicity Amazing Fit live up to their brand name on this pattern.
What else, what else? I thought that Simplicity 1606 looked so charming – and again a flattering fit with interesting design details. The pattern can veer young enough for a prom dress, summery enough for a beach halterneck or sophisticated enough for a wedding. And again, those separate cup size pattern pieces. What’s not to like?!
So, leave a comment below saying which pattern you’d like 1606 or 1882. I’m dead curious to see which one proves most popular! (I bet Simplicity will be interested, too.) This giveaway is open worldwide and will close on Sunday 21 July at midnight GMT.
A big thank you to Simplicity! Not only Amazing Fit but Absolutely Amazing.
