This dress was made using the Simplicity 3673, the retro dress pattern. Yes, the same as my Newspaper dress.
I modified it a little bit at the neckline, changed it to a V-neck.
The neckline and hem are decorated with a cute cherry print binding (see second picture). The dress has hidden pockets, which close with folded ribbons and buttons (see third picture).
The zipper is at the right side (I don’t like zippers in the middle of the back, they look so ugly) so nobody can see it. The dress is perfect for the summer, because it isn’t lined and therefore light and airy.
Red cotton, cherryprint biaisband, zipper.
