I made this dress quickly and without bothering too much about it. I just wanted to have something to wear at my office Christmas dinner. Not worth it to spend a lot of time on something you are going to wear for just a couple of hours in your whole life. In spite of that, I already wore the dress 3 times: at the office Christmas dinner, at my family pre-Christmas gathering and on Boxing Day. And I plan to wear it in the summer as well. The fabric is probably a little bit too stiff for this pattern, but I had it in my stash. Yes, yes, yes: I’m happy with my quick-fix dress :-)
