Fall 2016, Dress 1 of 2

(photo: Dad)

~Pattern: the retired Simplicity #8071
~The fabric is a fine, shirt weight corduroy that came from Jo-Ann...THIS season! (It was also a birthday gift from a dear friend- Thank you Rachel!)

~And I lengthened the bodice 2 1/2 inches, so I could wear a belt with it. (but I don't guess I have to)
~I added an extra inch of fabric to each shoulder front, and gathered it to make it match the back bodice.  (Then pinched it out in 2 pleats at the waist.)
~And I pinched out 2 more pleats, so...4 pleats total. =)
~The zipper is a invisible zipper, set in the back.  I just love my IZ foot that Dad got me- I can't thank him enough!
