|Corrected pattern -vs- original pattern|
Tonia has just informed me that the next Dinner In A Costume for our collaborative costume blog, The Emerald Parlor, will be the weekend of her birthday in late June - and the theme will be Celtic! This is convenient, indeed, considering I am presently constructing Simplicity's Women's Celtic dress pattern for a pattern review. The Women's Celtic dress was released three times - I have the original from 1998 (Simplicity 0663), which was repackaged and renumbered that same year as pattern number 8855. Simplicity 8855 was discontinued a few years later, only to be brought back a few years ago as patten number 3623. Tonia and I have looked at the patterns to determine if Simplicity has made any structural changes to it over the years, and they haven't. All three editions of the patterns are identical, so don't get suckered into buying the rarer 0663 package when the other two (8855 & 3623) will make the exact same costume - :)
