I’ve already written a review on this pattern (Simplicity 2171).
(similar to McCall’s 6387)
This is the first dress I made with the pattern…
I wanted to write another on this third dress I made. I added pockets and changed the design of the straps. I didn’t like the knots in the front. It’s cool here and Ana often wears a t-shirt under the dress, in which case I have to adjust the straps. It was a real pain in the butt to adjust the straps.
So I attached the straps in the front (instead of a back) and made one big button-hole in the back. I love this design so much more. It’s easier to tie so I can completely untie the bow when undressing, which makes it so easy to get the dress off and on. Also, I can easily pull the front bodice up high so it’s more modest.
I’m really looking forward to having time to make more of these dresses.
