Simplicity 2250 Summer Dress

Hello Everyone,

Simplicity 2250 dress
I haven't posted in a while but I have been making quite a few projects. The most recent of which is this yellow summer dress from Simplicity's spring/ summer collection. I saw the patter in the February issue of Sew Magazine (which I got a subscription to for Christmas) and immediately wanted to make it. I have never made a piece of clothing from scratch using a pattern so this was my first attempt. I was a bit nervous as the bodice has a number of pleats, darts and folds that are quite daunting when the pattern first arrives. However I was determined to press ahead and I am very pleased I did. I made the longer skirted version of the options given with the pattern with the thinner straps.
