Simplicity 2497


I scored this pattern at a Hancock's sale for $1.99. I don't really understand why folks pay full price for patterns when they will go on sale like that. The pattern originally cost $16.95. I don't get it.

Originally, I bought said pattern to be my 9day birthday frock. Well.... that didn't happen. I did nothing special to mark my entry in to the 40's. And I'm not sure how I feel about that. I was planning to do the sleeveless version with the fringe at the neckline. That's what I bought the pattern for. But now I think I am going to do the "B" version of the dress, with this bold burgundy floral print I have for Thanks-Taking. Again another day I have no real reason to mark specially. I have issues....

The thing that is really bothering me is... I don't get where to put the zipper. The directions suck and I am having trouble finding a suitable location. Push come to shove, I'll put it in the back. But from all the pics I find, it doesn't go there.

Wish me luck.....
