This was a simple shift dress that I made up using a heavier weight ikat fabric and a pattern from the BurdaStyle Sewing Vintage Modern book. I originally made this in a size 36-38 but needed to size down to a 34 for the final version. I also added 2.5 inches to the hem rather than 1.5 inches. Overall, I am pleased with the dress and plan to wear it during the summer and into the fall.
