Hello good folks! I hope this week has been good to you so far. And if it hasn't - I truly hope it gets better! Buying fabric always perks me up. (And a dr. Pepper)This weeks "DO YOU HAVE THIS PATTERN" comes from good ol' Simplicity 2374. This pattern is one of my favorites. If you don't have it , you must add it to your never-ending list of patterns for your next shopping trip. I made View C in a knit. Originally the pattern requires that the bodice is made of a knit and the band skirt in a woven, but I chose to make the whole dress in a knit. (the $13.00 knit from Joann's) Hey - I am a slave to the knit. It draws me in everytime. This pattern is super easy and goes together fast. The only thing I did different from the instructions was to add a band treatment around the neck and armscyes. I truly love this dress and plan to make more.

yup I have that pattern but I havent made a dog gone thing from it! I've been eyeing the romper as the temperatures have increased. I would not have thought to not make the bottom out of a woven. Your dress looks really cute!
