I used Simplicity pattern 8214 to make this dress. I made it a couple of years ago, but never photographed myself in it. It’s super comfy and a quick sew. It’s a really great pattern for a beginner sewer. There’s so many things that I like about this dress. It has all the things that I love-pockets, a pussy-bow, and quarter length sleeves. The pattern is no longer available for purchase on Simplicity’s website, but you can purchase is by searching Amazon and Etsy. I’ve included a pattern review below. I hope you enjoy and don’t forget to subscribe to my blog! Enjoy your weekend!
