Simplicity 2406 Status Report*

Simplicity 2406

Name: Simplicity 2406 - Cynthia Rowley Collection

Location: Previously stuffed into cupboard in disgust, now on dress form

Appearance: Wrinkled (due to stuffing). And sack-like.

Status: Incomplete. Major rejigging required.

Do say: Nothing a belt won't fix!

Don't say: I've met potato sacks with more shape!

*Done somewhat in the style of the Guardian's brilliant daily fixture, Pass notes


  1. I made that dress and did some major side seams adjustments. I'm not a skinny mini but the sizing also seemed wrong. I rocked it to two wedding, only because I loved the fabric so.... It makes me feel oh-so-betterer hearing your struggling with the potao sack LOL!

  2. Cute pattern! Must get my sewing machine fixed :(

  3. Simplicity patterns often have too much ease. I hate it when they don't put the finished garment measures on the pack.

  4. It looks similar to Simplicity 2892 - without a belt it's just a sack! But very cute when cinched at the waist.

    That being said, the pattern cover looks like it's designed to have extra fabric up around the waist - that would be no good for me!

    @ Gail - I think usually they have the finished garment measurements on the pattern itself, of course you would have to buy the pattern first to find out!!

  5. I'm sure if anyone could get this pattern to work it would be you!
