|I picked a deep purple color for this dress. I did pattern 3.|
After having issues with my Peggy dress, I purchased a few patterns that were true to my size. Simplicity 4650 seemed like a great starting point. The fit looked nice, and I liked the square neckline. I'm not quite ready to wear a collar like that but I may in a future version of this dress.
The pattern was already cut out so I just fit it to my fabric and made the proper transfer markings without messing with the integrity of the vintage pattern papers. The instructions were a simple front and back sheet and were very easy to follow.
The fit came out great - I didn't have to make any adjustments. I left the bottom of the dress pretty long... I may hem it a little higher but I don't have very many long skirts so I think it'd be nice to have some variety in the wardrobe.
