Simplicity 3595

S 3596 is a Simplicity Halloween costume pattern. I made the clown dress this weekend for Kate (came out very cute, but I don't have any photos of it) and noticed that it was really just a very cute A-line shift. So here is a non-costume sleeveless version.

On the topic of dresses, I really need to buy a ruffler foot. I found this dress this morning and to buy it because the collar is gorgeous.

It's by "Max & Cleo" and I can't seem to find a website for them, sadly. The dress is all cotton, elastic waist, faux wrap. There's a tiny hook and eye to keep the faux wrap top from gapping, and a side zip. Too cute.

(ETA the dress is on Nordstrom's site in brown and in yellow)

2 pretty dresses. Does a ruffler make pleats? I do not have a ruffler, but thought they only made gathers - if they make pleats as well I will have to get one!

Oh, I don't blame you for buying that dress! It looks great! I used a ruffler on an industrial machine before, and it made ruffles that were so uniform I guess I could see them being ironed and becoming pleats. But the trim on your dress looks like it was pleated at some specialty shop.
