A really simple pattern – it seems shapeless but it’s still quite flattering. I’ve made it from some vintage silk that I had in my fabric stash, and fully lined the dress instead of using facings and bias binding around the arm opening. I also put a zipper in the centre back instead of the side seam because my fabric wasn’t wide enough to cut the back on the fold, but I kept the cute keyhole opening at the neckline anyway.
