I finished my working toile for the Simplicity Sewing Challenge 2016 using the Simplicity 1206. I decided not to make it up in the fabric I had in mind as I’m keeping it for Littles Ones 5th Birthday dress (See my other posts about the birthday dresses I make her) Its a hand embellished ribbon sewn on to a voile and its going to be perfect for the birthday dress big project.
This fabric is from the fabulous Fabric Land Brighton branch. The Little One choose it herself and loves wearing it. I made a matching shoulder purse for her (not pictured).
I found it quite straight forward, until I got to the yoke and sleeves which were a bit fiddly, as if you didn’t get the gathering right the armholes could end up to big.
I would make this again, with the overlay this time. Just need to find the right fabric for it.
