I like this Simplicity 3835 pattern so much that I made another one out of it. I altered the pattern a little:
1) widen the end of sleeves by 2 inches to make them more bubbly (I actually wished that I had widden them a little more).
2) added bands (about 1.75 inches) to gather the sleeves.
3) obviously….I added a flower brooch :) I made it out of the same fabric and added a few swarovski clear crystals and grey pearls.
100% wool crepe (grey), so it does keep me warm in the winter :)

Peneloping's hand beaded frock is a real stunner.
