I’ve been watching the HBO series Rome recently, and the costumes are so gorgeous that it’s made me really want a Roman/Grecian style dress. This pattern sort of fits the bill with pleats at the shoulders and a billowy skirt. Sewing the waist pleats was tedious, but otherwise it’s a quick and easy pattern.

Material Notes

My last cut of Joann’s poly-charmeuse. This is the fourth dress I’ve made from the stuff, and hopefully the last ever.
