Jiffy Dress: Simplicity 1609
When the new simplicity books came into the store (I work at Fabricland) and I flipped the page to this new re-released Jiffy dress, I gasped. "OMG we have to make this". So I whipped up a sample for a summer camp class. When I first saw this pattern, it looked like the dresses from Moonlight Kingdom, but now in this color it's reading as Megan from season 4 of Mad Men. Perfect for the Mad Men challenge! (My second entry!)
The fabric is a cotton, with a bit of spandex in this BRIGHT coral color, I just love it. The collar is in a white cotton pique, with some covered buttons also in white. This pattern is an excellent reprint. It has french darts in the front, and one piece facing. I LOVE one piece facings. It makes such a clean finish. This dress was so easy to put together, It took me a little more than a morning. Good thing too because I have to teach this class to teenagers this summer!
