Are You SICK of Simplicity 2591 Yet??

Link

I'm NOT!!!

I had to get online and look at what others have done with this pattern....I am still in love with this dress.

You should be able to click on any of these pictures and be taken to the sites I found them....

This lady is just amazing....I love following her blog...she is making A DRESS A WEEK!! Right after I made mine, she posted about her Simplicity 2591....I was thrilled to say the least. I just love the fabric. My problem is....white and me do NOT get along very well.... :(

This sweet lady blogged about how many mistakes are in this dress...and is very thankful the pattern disguises it. I think it looks divine on her.


I like the ticking on this fabric....what about that viking hat??
I could see my daughter wearing this complete outfit.

Yep, totally adore the hula girl fabric....SU-WEET!



Yep, liking the stripes as well....very Coney Island, don't you think?





This ticking has tiny red crabs all over it....seersucker fabric. Make sure you look at her shoes!





Yet another version....it just amazes how the fabric makes all the difference in the look of this dress.
