The pattern is SIMPLICITY2250, I omitted the back ties just because I didn’t like it.
I like this pattern, with clear step by step instructions without any mistakes or misunderstandings, except for the last step: how to finish the lining around the zipper.
Originally I wanted to make this dress with black printed fabric in the fifth picture, but I was not sure if the pattern fits me well or not so I used this red paisley fabric, which was one of my least favorite fabric, for trial. and now I love it!
