The Ankara Mini Dress – S8124 Review

Hey Guys,

Dropping in with my 2nd look from our Atlanta Sewing Style summer photo shoot.

I’m sure you recognize this beauty!😍 That’s right it’s the popular Cynthia Rowley Simplicity 8124 mini dress.

I made it using an african wax print that I picked up from www.Roppudles.com.

PATTERN REVIEW

Pattern Description:

Pattern Sizing: I cut a size xtra small.

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Sure

Were the instructions easy to follow? Extremely easy.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I love how quick and easy this dress is. I also love the use of 1″ elastic for the neckline and wrist bands. I think it looks so much nicer than the narrower elastic used in some other designs I’ve seen.

Fabric Used: African Wax Print purchased from Roppudles.com a locally based company.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I added a 2″ hem instead of the suggested 4″ hem. I wanted my dress to have more of an A-Line shape so I redrafted the sides. I also added pockets.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes I will definitely be making another. I highly recommend this pattern if you like this style
