Simplicity 9324 is a relatively new release, and I highly recommend this pattern which fit true to size and had no major adjustments besides shortening the bodice an inch for my long in legs but shorter torso 12 year old. This is a really cute dress for a tween. I used a linen fabric bought in the nearby downtown Los Angeles Fabric district.
I really like the pockets on this dress!
These photos were taken on the rooftop of my daughter Lily’s apartment in South Central LA. You can see a fire going on in downtown Los Angeles.
Simplicity 9324 has cut on sleeves so there are no armholes to set in sleeves to deal with and the directions for the invisible zipper are also clear. I would recommend this dress pattern to an advanced beginner. I also recommend it be sewed in a firm cotton or linen type fabric.
