Cynthia Rowley Simplicity 2587

I finished this dress last night. It was a really quick project and it turned out a lot better than I expected. I had made a muslin of this pattern and I was worried because there was too much ease. I thought I would have to make a dress that was two sizes smaller than I normally would make, but I ended up only going down one size and it was a perfect fit! Aside from the size issue, I didn't make any modifications to the pattern.

Simplicity 2587

I had been looking for a new sewing project to start when I remembered that I still had a Cynthia Rowley pattern that I hadn't tackled yet. I am going to make view B of the strappy dress, which is the shorter version. I found this awesome Liberty print, called Sydenham Place, at Bolt. I especially love all the colors. I'll use the dusty pink for the contrasting trim.
