This is my version of a skirt-dress. I love that style which is so practical: you don’t have to worry about matching up an outfit and keeping all pieces in place during the day.
The design is based on two different patterns: Simplicity 2406 dress for the top and Burda Marie 9177 skirt for the bottom.
The top is a white cotton with a slight brocade-like white-on-white print and the skirt is a black cotton sateen lined with black polyester.
I sewed the pleats on the front of the skirt as indicated in the pattern but I decided to make the back as a straight pencil skirt with two darts on each side.
