I love the checkered pattern so I snagged this fabric when it was on sale. I used Simplicity’s pattern #2360. I like the boat neck collar but you can add different collar variations to it. The belt hides the elastic waist. I originally cut a size 8 but I should’ve cut a size 6 since I had to alter it in the bust area.
1.5 yards of cotton, 1/4 inch elastic for the waist , thread
