Notes This project really evolved.... The dress was inspired by this pattern....

I only did the outer "chiffon" layer. Using the most lovely plain viscos!

I always had in mind to make a dress not a shirt so I cut longer than the pattern, but then realised I have short legs and had to cut a lot off again... The pattern is long to start with.

I made the sleeves and the body a bit narrower than the pattern. All was really good at this point until I saw my side profile and the lovely maternity dress I had made....

The belt was added and the elastic in the back to add shape.

Pockets are always convenient, so a set of those went in.

And I made the arm length adjustable to 1/2 or 3/4.

The back is slightly longer than the front, and has a accent lining.

Lovely, easy pattern, quick to sew, if you don't keep changing you mind as to what you want....I am very happy with the final product!
