I made Simplicity 1873 with a tropical print cotton batiste. I omitted the button tabs and sewed up per pattern directions. This dress was well drafted and came together quickly once I got started. I made a size 10 to eliminate ease, but had to use the dart placement for the size 12 to accomodate my girls. More photos and details can be found in my blog DapperDuds
