This fabric is a gem at Britex Fabrics- I used Simplicity 8085 to make this piece happen

Can I say how much I love this dress? The comfortable wrap style of Simplicity 8085 can be both dressed up and dressed down. I decided to go with a stunning Italian cotton from Britex Fabrics that really makes this piece a knock out. I’m actually all ready looking forward for any excuse to wear it!



Simplicity 8085 was a breeze to sew and for an advanced beginner and intermediate seamstress, you can whip up this design within a few hours after doing pattern adjustments. To read more about it and see additional photos,  please check out the Britex Blog or click on the image below!
