Minerva Crafts Blogger Network: Simplicity 8608 Ruffle Wrap Dress


Minerva Crafts Blogger Network: Simplicity 8608 Ruffle Wrap Dress

Hi pinups! I'm feeling super summer-y in my Simplicity 8608 faux wrap ruffle dress but for me, this pattern wasn't plain sailing. It's a relatively new Simplicity pattern and was surprisingly bang on trend when it came out as ruffle dresses are all over the high street this summer. As soon as I saw the 8608 pattern I fell in love and had such high hopes for all of the variations.

Sewing Summary:

Pattern: Simplicity 8608

Notions: Elastic for the waist (which I ended up skipping).

Sewing time: A day.

Modifications: No elasticated waist, plus a couple of mistakes...

Fit: Good!

Difficulty: Medium, a little experience will help you out here.

Watch out for: A lot! Mentioned in my review.

Make Again?: Yes, but with some changes.
