A Better Jersey Dress

A couple of years ago I made up this Simplicity 2369 and it was okay--I may not have used the best jersey, and I didn't like the loose flappy sleeves. 

This week I tried a pattern that's very, very similar but works much better: Simplicity 1653. Basically they've given you cup size to choose from (I followed the pattern's chart with great success) and best of all, there is a curved center back seam and there are *four* darts for the derriere. If you choose the curvy option.

 Highly recommended.

Oh I saw this in the pattern book on Friday night, and wondered. Maybe I'll have to go back. Thanks Anna!
