Man! I’ve really missed blogging… Just to give you guys a little background, I’m in my last year of school and decided the summer would be a great time to take some courses (insert side eye). While trying to sew, blog, do homework and be a great mom, girlfriend, friend, sister and employee I found that my new found love of blogging ended up taking a back seat. Disappointed is an understatement.
Well the semester is over and I’m ready to jump head first into the creativity pond!! Pond?! More like an ocean! But nonetheless I want to be in it!
In between doing everything else this summer, I managed to cut out some patterns I was interested in sewing and this Simplicity Cynthia Rowley pattern was heavy on my mind after seeing a version by That Black Chic. I saw the dress she made on her Instagram feed almost a month ago and was DETERMINED to make my own! The pattern looked simple enough and I had just been gifted 4 yards of Ankara fabric by a friend. She decided she didn’t have a vision for the fabric and that she would love to see what I came up with using it. Was this a challenge??? Why yes I believe it is!
Let me first tell you this pattern is super simple!!! I think any beginner sewer could master this pattern with ease. The only real measurement is your bust area. Just make sure you follow your size based on finished measurements. The pattern came together so easily and nicely. I am so excited about this dress! The summer is basically over, but I do plan to make 1 more before it gets too cold. I think this dress can transition into fall with the right covering and fabric choice.
If you’ve been hesitant to make this pattern I strongly suggest you give it a try and pick up the pattern when there’s a sale.
