Passport Dress - Simplicity K2209
Cheap synthetic taffeta type material - horrible to work with a frays like crazy.
Made a toile which worked well and I did all the pleats the right way, needed taking in at the sides - under the arms.. which I did. I did not bother to toile the bodice again as I was running out of time.. so the final dress was too tight under the arms.... so after wearing it I took it apart and resewed the seams with a smaller seam allowance... unfortunately destroying my lovely zip insertion - now it looks terrible!
I like the side zip - the unbroken back bodice looks good!
