Description

It’s a 100% cotton dress. Design is based on Simplicity 6670.
I modified it on the back to hide my bra, and added collar and buttons.
I like it’s feminine look, but yet casual.

    This dress is just adorable and looks so good on you. I love the collar. I’m not as experienced as you are, could you give me a hint how to alter the original pattern to add this beautiful collar?

    I think it’s one of the loveliest dresses that I’ve seen in this site for a while now. The fabric is beautiful, though I’m not really a pink kind of girl, I love the colour. Well done!
