Pattern of the Week: Cynthia Rowley Denim Dress

The Denim Dress

In this week’s Pattern of the Week, we’re featuring a Simplicity Cynthia Rowley 2215. Not only does it have a matching blouse but this pattern also includes skirt- with pockets! For the more experienced sewer, inserting the optional fringe trim will add a lovely textural feature.
This one was whipped up by the latest member of the W&W team - Jane Austen!
Instead of creating button holes on the front bodice, we have sewn in concealed press studs and placed a decorative button on top. The creator of this garment, Jane Austen, chose to do this as the bodice wasn’t tight fitting and the denim was getting bulky.

We LOVE Simplicity's Cynthia Rowley patterns!
