Since I can remember, I’ve been in love with plaid. It’s one of those fabrics that can turn an ordinary dress into something a bit more special. This plaid suiting from moodfabrics.com is one of those fabrics. It’s a perfect light weight one direction stretch summer suiting that’s perfect for not only dresses but would also make a great fitting pair of pants.
This dress was made vintage Simplicity 8390 with the following pattern alterations:
-Removed the fluted hem portion of the pattern and used only the top portion
-Added 6″ to the length
-Added an encased 1/2″ elastic around the waist
-Used the sleeve of McCalls M5927 and left 3 1/2″ of the bottom of the sleeve seam open.
