I made this dress for last week’s Tickled in Pink challenge.
The dressmaking (and loving) story is told here.
This is my third time making this dress style (pleated wrap bodice with midriff + dirndl skirt) and it certainly won’t be my last as I think I’m finally done fussing with the fit.
Hope you dig it half as much as I do.

Love it! Great Frankendress. And I agree that you need to make more of them! I’ve instituted a “minimum 2” rule for all the patterns that I have correctly fitted. Helps use up the fabric stash, if not the pattern one. Did you buy your fabric online, by any chance? I really love it!
Thanks!! That rule of yours totally makes sense. If you take the time to make a pattern fit…why not let the gift keep on giving!
The fabric was bought at my local JoAnn’s. But the same Lisette poplin seems to be sold on their website too. Check it out here. And, it’s on sale!
Let me know if you buy and make something out of it….I really like the Lisette fabric collections…they’re so fresh and whimsical looking…they make me think of picnics and ice cream cones.
I know of them! I was really enthusiastic when they came out but I haven’t been to the US since the line launched (patterns+fabric). I need to add this to my list of “Things to Buy when in the USA”.
That dress is perfect on you. So beautiful. You’ve convinced me that I need one too. I’ve just added Simplicity 2217 to my list of “must make this some day”. But I didn’t call it “Simplicity 2217”. How boring is that? No. It’s now called “Najah’s Dress”.
I love it. Great fit and the colour is gorgeous. I’ll have to take a second look at the Lisette collection. I agree; S2217 should be called the “Najah”
That is a great dress and style for you. It looks great.
Very pretty dress. I just worked up a similar one from an old Vogue pattern ( I think it’s vogue vintage). Lakaribane’s rule should be written in stone (I had to tweak a lot for the bust and neckline).
Love the pink/orange combo. 🙂
