I’m not so sure about today’s project. It’s Simplicity 1172, from 1944. I fell in love with this pattern when I saw Mena’s version at http://www.sewweekly.com. It’s a very easy to sew pattern but was quite difficult to grade and fit. I think this just might be one of those dresses that is more flattering to a slimmer figure. I don’t hate it, but I don’t think I’ll sew it again.
