This is the Sigma dress, a simple semi fitted dress with front and back darts, side pockets, and variations of short/long sleeves and straight/gathered skirt. It also includes a separate waistband pattern if you only want to make the skirt.
My fabric is Indonesian ikat fabric from my sister in law. The color is iridescent green which unfortunately hard to catch by the camera. I made the long sleeve variation with straight skirt and omitted the pockets.
I cut the pattern is sixe XXS on bust, XS on waist, and back to XXS on hip. I might get away by cutting a straight XXS but I like the extra ease around my waist. Alterations I made are shortening the bodice and swayback adjustment.
