Pattern Review: Simplicity 2648 Misses’ Dresses

Style Tip: Embellish this simple dress with a chic trim around the neckline.

This review was originally featured in Threads #149 (June/July 2010).

Simplicity 2648

This dress pattern is an installment of Simplicity’s Amazing Fit series. It features a classic style with a contemporary twist on fitting. Views include sleeveless, short, and cap-sleeve options as well as scoop and V-neckline choices. The unique pattern can accommodate any cup size and corresponding hip variation. Separate pieces are included for cups A through D, as well as hips that are slim, average, and curvy, allowing for a more precise fit. The larger cup sizes have extra length over the bust area between notches, so select an easy-to-use fabric. The pattern offers a substantial ease allowance: 3.25 inches at the bust, 3.5 inches at the hips, and 1 inch at the side seams. The directions are clear with fitting charts at the beginning of the instructions to help guide you through the fitting process.

(Sized Misses/Miss Petite 6–24 for busts 30.5–46 in. and hips 32.5–48 in.)

Style Tip: Embellish this simple dress with a chic trim around the neckline.
