Oh Simplicity 2724

I love it and I hate it. Simplicity 2724, a Project Runway pattern.
And it's not finished yet (needs to be shortened and hemmed; possibly needs side zipper to be reinstalled. I should never ever try installing side zippers again. They never ever work for me!)
The skirt of the dress is symmetrical even though it doesn't look that way in the picture!
It is sleeveless and collarless.
Does it look too bridesmaidy? It's the dress I was going to wear to Christine's wedding. I'm not a bridesmaid. I don't want to look like one.

It also looks like the left and right side of the "collar" are not aligned, but they are.

  1. I like the dress and I don't think it's too much like a bridesmaid dress (unless, of course, the bridesmaids are wearing a similar color). I like the neckline and also the sash. Hope finishing it goes well.

  2. I think it looks great! The design is not bridesmaidy but, as M said, if this is one of the wedding colors that is another story. :) I assume it fits perfectly? If so and you clear the color with someone close to the wedding, I say go for it!
