      Well, I drafted a pattern for my “When in Rome dress”http://mbym.webblogg.se/2010/may/when-in-rome.html/ and just altered it myself. Changed it to have a v-neck and made it a bit more loose fit. Then on the skirt part I just cut out two pieces (the same lenght as the bodice leght around) and sew them together. At the top of this skirt part I sew a 1,5cm (0.6") edge for the elastic waistband to be in! :) Then I sewed the two parts together in the elasticedgething. hehe. And then in with the waistband and then you have a dress ready to wear! (I love it, it’s so comfy :D)
