UFO: Simplicity 3503

Before I had my first child ( I now have three!) I cut out and started sewing an animal print maxi dress using Simplity 3503. It was all the rage back then..... you know before the indie pattern and general sewing pattern explosion....... ah those were the days when sewing patterns were just numbers, not names belonging to the blogosphere........

Eventually, she is finished

I have nothing to add to what everyone has said about this pattern. It is fabulous. I cut a size 8 and it fits like a dream straight out of the packet. The only change was to cut 4 inches off the length as I am 5'4". Despite the fact that I am four years late with it, there are still a lot of maxi dresses around and it is perfect for the heat wave the UK is experiencing.
