Description

This flirty frock features a rounded neckline with three tucks. It’s basically a smock with no shaping through the body so I made a belt to cinch it in and define the waist. It’s a super simple design with no zips or buttons needed and it took me less than one day to make. The Simplicity pattern I used provides three other variations; two tops and a dress with sleeves.

Material Notes

I used a cobalt blue cotton blended with lycra and mathing thread.

    I have this pattern and I was second guessing it until……! Looks so comfy and great…I am trying to make a few dresses that are good work around the house yet not wear schleppy gym outfits…. ;-) So pretty and simple!

      Thanks!! It’s actually Simplicity 2933 – I improvised a belt because it’s so roomy.
