This dress has been my staple dress this summer. It is comfortable, easy to throw on, good for most situations.
I based the yoke off the Danielle pattern (with a ton of changes). The body of the dress is basically a big rectangle. I used pintucks at the front and back around the waist to give it some shape, matching all the polka dots. (I pinned it while wearing it, how much would I love to have a dress form…).
It has a handpicked zip at the centre back. I love handpicking zips now!
Magdamagda has some great tips on sewing nice scallops.
