Simplicity 3877 dress

I finished Simplicity 3877 today. It took a lot longer than I expected, even after all the godets, as I put the zip in very badly on my first attempt, and spent much more time removing, repairing and replacing than I should. Despite this hiccup I am very happy with the dress. It is very comfortable, and I will probably make it again.
 

I will be able to wear this into Autumn. The fabric is a medium - weight cotton from Spotlight. I think I bought it in the June/July school holidays, so will enter the garment in the patternreview Stash contest, to add my mite to the total amount sewn.

Nice! That color is great on you :-)

How did sewing the godets go? I've never sewn any, and for some reason they always struck me as fidgety and hard to get to lie right. Your skirt looks fantastic, so I guess you got them in well! ;-)

Great dress! It looks terrific on you! I've liked this for a long time, but honestly, the fabric requirements have put me off of it. That and the fact that if it takes that much fabric, it's probably going to be a pain to cut it all out! I'm going to rethink that now!

Great dress, I love the colour on you. I just HAD to rush out and buy the pattern after I read your review and found out it comes with different cup sizes! Spotlight had 50% off their pattern up here so that didn't help either!! :)
