Description

This is a modified version of the original dress. I kept it simple as requested. I removed the collar, increased the pleats along the front, lowered and reshaped the armholes and shortened the entire dress 4". I removed 3" from the front of the dress I also put large pockets into the sides.

Material Notes

Heavy cotton sateen
