The Belle Dress – Simplicity 3620

I can’t think of any other name to describe this dress that I made last August/September for my Aunt Lil’s wedding…it’s made of bright yellow crepe-back satin that I got from Our Social Fabric at one of their earliest sales. The fabric reminds me of Belle’s yellow gown from Beauty and the Beast. It’s not in the same style but the fabric is such a sunshiney and shimmering yellow. The pattern is Simplicity 3620 and the dress is lined except for the puff sleeves. I cut the smallest size, so a size 6, because I noticed how much ease was in the pattern!

I was pretty happy with how this turned out! Other than some very minor details I would fix if I made a second one, such as the neckline gapes just slightly and the armholes are a smidgen tight, I love this dress! It’s sooooo satiny though that it’s definitely a special occasion dress. Needs a good steaming too if I were to take it out for another outing.

Fabric covered buttons!

I’ve got a few more old projects that still need photo taking. And my isn’t my hair getting long? Till next week lovelies!
