The “Mini Dress” Simplicity 8264.
Cynthia Rowley is probably my favorite pattern designer. I made Simplicity 8264 view A in this beautiful brocade. It’s a bit short, so I added 2 inches to the length but I didn’t like it. Since I’m not very good at acting like a “lady” I’ll wear it with tights.
Pattern Description: Top and mini dress has a touch of femininity with ruffle on stand-up collar and sleeves.
Pattern Sizing: 4 – 20. I cut size 8.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes, sort of, a bit square though..😂
Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I like the ruffles and the simplicity of it.
Fabric Used: Chinese Brocade. You can find it Here.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I originally added 2″ to the length but it didn’t look right.
Would you sew it again? I will probably sew the top and pants.
Would you recommend it to others? Yes!!
