Yeap that's how I think of this dress - Simplicity 4014. The pattern is the key to the sucess of this dress and then the fabric adds the "wow" factor. The dress has princess seams with a great flare hem which gives the dress a twirly factor. I was looking for a reversible piece and I didn't want to make a top or a coat, and this fit the bill. As I have previously blogged about I am really pleased with the final results.
This one of the most versatile pieces in the collection. Not only can it be worn with a jacket to the office but it can be worn separately with some stunning jewelry as a great date dress. Whatever looks I can make with this dress, they are automatically doubled because it is reversible.
Simplicity 4014 - a lined princess seam dress with a wing collared jacket. I will definitely make this dress again. And to me that is a true mark of a great pattern. The copyright date on this pattern is 2006 and I know that it is still on the website.
