A plaid dress, made of 'coating' weight wool and fully lined/interfaced with a tricot lining.



I used Simplicity 2648, an amazing fit pattern, which is not so amazing if you leave it baggy to wear your standard 3-5 layers beneath it (Yes, there's a couple shirts, heavy tights and leggings under there). I do enjoy the 'D cup' variation which is a nice change up from blatantly appearing like you're squeezing your D cups into a pattern designed for A or B. Another plus...breathing.

I haven't used plaids a lot, but pretty proud of the result. The skirt front is a center front and two side fronts, the bodice is a center front and two side fronts. The back lines up, too, but you'll have to take my word since I was too tired after work to take a bajillion pictures.

Lovely! You must enjoy the change from same old, same old. Did it take long?

It is better to have crafted and failed then never to have crafted at all.
Yes, I am stalking the Toys and Playthings board. Thanks for noticing!
I'm cheating on Craftster with Pinterest. It's ok though. There's overlap.

Nice work! Plaids are too intimidating for me but you did a really good job lining it up Smiley

I've decided that 2011 is my Year of Dresses. It's still summer here (just about) but I'm going to make some lined wool dresses to see me through July and August when it gets icy outside. So long as I have woolly tights it should be grand!

Thanks guys!

Cutting it out probably took a couple of hours. Putting it together took about three (including the extra step of sewing the tricot to the pieces first).

Staying warm was definitely worth it!
