Pattern Review: Simplicity 8314

This is not the first dress I have made from this pattern, and it will not be the last.

This is the first version of this particular design that I have made.

The pattern comes from Simplicity 8314, which is designed by the ever wonderful Keepers Dolly Duds.

It looks complicated, but it was very simple!

I timed myself and it took me 40 minutes to sew this dress. That does not include the time that it took to cut out the fabric and iron it.

I don't usually time myself, but it was close to bedtime.

The fabrics in these dresses are probably not very authentic to the 1960s. I just wanted to make something for my cousins and use what I had on hand, and not use my more expensive fabrics, either.

I used two different color combinations so that the sisters can tell their dresses apart.

I like the purple one best; my best friend likes the pink one best. Something for everyone!

I was pleased with how cute and easy this dress is.

The other dress that I have made from this pattern was my Wednesday Addams dress.

Sewing doll clothes is such fun for me, and I can't wait to see how my cousins like the dresses!
