Owl Simplicity 1803

Welcome to my third rodeo with Simplicity 1803. You can see Muslin and Floral if you click on the links. The pattern seems to be discontinued/out of stock on Simplicity website, but fear not, I found a few for sale on Amazon(affiliate link)

Just like with previous makes, I sewed up a size 12 dress in view A with cap sleeves. I did no further changes to the fit aside from what I did last time as I had marked those changes to the pattern already.

The fabric is a fun cotton with owl and mushroom print, it's such a fun fabric, how can I not love it? I overlocked all the raw seam allowances to prevent fraying and used a rolled hem for the sleeves and skirt. I skipped the belt and pockets as I was in a bit of a hurry to finish the dress. I mean it's perfectly normal to decide the dress you want to wear in the evening isn't even cut out yet, right? Good thing I can sew fast, otherwise I'd be tucked in to the loony bin ages ago.


  1. So sweet. You are not alone. I think MANY of us have done the make it in a few hours frenzied sewing thing :)

    1. Haha, thanks. I've discovered I'm most productive when I'm on a super tight deadline and sewing in almost a psychotic state of mind.
