Simplicity Pattern - Cynthia Rowley 2584

I really like Cynthia Rowley patterns!  I made 2584 for the football game this weekend and was so pumped up about how it turned out.  This is definitely my favorite dress yet.  It didn't take me long to make the dress and it was so rewarding.  I used a corral cotton sateen from fabric.com.  It was so soft and really easy to work with.  I omitted the zipper because the neck opening is plenty big to just pull over your head.  Highly recommend it!

Terrible game for the Tigers, but a beautiful day for football!


  1. Hi! I'm planning on making this and was wondering how you omitted the zipper. Did you just cut on the fold instead? Thanks!

  2. Hey Emily- I cut the pattern out with the intention of using a zipper. When I tried it on, I realized that I could just pull it over my head so I sewed right down the back!

    Hope you love your dress- this is still one of my favorite patterns!

  3. Did you follow the size your measurements went with, or did you go one size down? Would you recommend going one size down for this style?
