Simplicity 2588 is graduation dress numero dos :) I have *never* made a dress with such a quick turn around time (buying fabric to wearability). I do not know if I was more shocked or if my family was! I hope I have more projects like this quite often in the future!
Anyways, it is just a simple linen/cotton fabric from Joanns. Easy wash and wear type fiber. My favorite of all time :D Easy to cut out. Easy to sew with and perfect for warm weather! This is the first dress that I have ever put and invisible zipper in and it went in right the first time. I was speechless.
The only alteration on this dress that I had to do was to take in the princess seams a bit. It really was so easy to do and I *would* recommend it to beginners if they want to take their sewing to the next level.
