Simplicity 8926- A Checkered Gingham Dress

I finished a project this weekend. It’s a checkered gingham dress that I made for my daughter as part of her Christmas gift. I bought a black and white checkered gingham fabric from awhile back. I thought it was perfect for this dress. I had some practice with this pattern already since I made a top using this pattern before- Simplicity 8926. Here is my finished product:

I like how the top turned out. I chose View C but I lengthened it to make it a dress. I wanted to make View A which is a long sleeved dress, but I didn’t have enough fabric.

Since it was my second time using this pattern, I was able to breeze through and finish this project over the weekend. The only issues I had was with my serger. My lower looper thread kept breaking. I had to read through the Brother 1034D handbook, watch some YouTube videos and do some research on the internet and let’s just say I learned a lot about my serger this weekend. Which is not a bad thing.

I can’t wait to give this to my daughter. I hope she likes it.

Until then, happy sewing!
