Sewing is therapy for me. I hoard fabric, patterns, notions, and spend more time shopping for fabric than I care to admit...

A plain gray dress--Simplicity 1018

Yes, I did it again, I made a solid gray dress.  I like gray.  It goes with anything and some days, I just want to wear a dress that is simple and understated, much like this one.

And now you see what I mean by simple and understated.  

I love how the bottom flares out and that you can twirl!

This fits me really well.  See where those princess seams hit?  Just where they are supposed to.  

The only problem with a knit like this is that it shows all your sins.  I really need to start working out again.  

Yes, you can see my slip or body shaping slip I am wearing.  Check out my tights, they are really funky!

Here is a close up of the neckline and the stretch stitch I use on my machine.  It is hard to see, but look carefully.  I use it on the hems as well.

Thanks for reading and I hope you all had a great holiday!


  1. I LOVE IT!! It is such a perfect color and fits you well!!

  2. That is a great finish on the neckline. Did you use zig zag or another stretch stitch? If so what one?
