March Challenge #6........ Simplicity 2455

I am still here and doing my thing.... I will be so happy if I can accomplish my set sewing goals for this month, but let's just wait and see..................Here is my review of thread simplicity 2455 dress..... I love this dress, the colour of my fabric and the simplicity of the pattern...just like the name says.....lol...

Inside look of the sleeve

Fabric: Suiting fabric with a little bit of stretch from Fabric land

Pattern Description: 2455 Misses' Sportswear...Threads Collection. Misses' dress or top, pants and jacket sewing patterns.

Pattern Sizing: K5, 10-16. I cut 14 upper and graded to 16 from hip down
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? For most part, except I didn't make the belt

Were the instructions easy to follow: Nothing can be easier.....

Pattern Alterations or any design changes you made: I didn't really do much alteration.
(1) I made 3/4" swayback adjustment
(2) I didn't put the zipper, because when I tried it to check the fit, I realised the stretch in the fabric is enough to put it on/out so I omitted the zipper.......

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? Nothing to dislike at all, I love the style and the fit

Would you recommend it to others? Absolutely......stylish, simple and can be worn as you desire

Conclusion: I am getting in love with threads collection now...lol, I have not been disappointed so far with any of their patterns.. I might be making this again in another fabric that will require lining.... I love it

Have a wonderful week everyone



  1. I love the color! Very pretty! I like the jacket from that pattern, too.

  2. Beautiful color. Love that fabric with stretch. Looks like your project is finished - is it?

  3. What a great sheath. The color is so close to your dressform, at least in the photo, that the form almost disappears!

  4. Simple, yet pretty. I like it! I have this pattern, gonna pull it out to see what I can do with it.

  5. Well done o! You're really racing towards that goal. Another great one.

  6. Lovely dress and you're right, the color is simply gorgeous!

  7. Hey Babe, I notice you have been doing lots of sewing since I travelled. I can read between the lines, don't worry, I will ensure I do my chores 100% so you have enough time to do your stuff. I am reporting myself publicly now LOL!!! Nice work, nice colour. Do you still want me to repair that Iron that got spoilt about 5 months ago? :)
