I made this for my wife to wear at a friend’s dinner party. I used Simplicity 2549, view B. Originally an evening dress, i made it in in more casual fabric. It has been shortened, to wear with leggings.
The pattern has some lovely finishing details, including arm, neck, and waist facing. I hemmed it with ribbon, to give it just a little extra love.
Cotton, zipper, hook and eye, ribbon
