I needed to make something to wear to my cousin’s 30th birthday party. Having the time and not wanting to spend loads of money, I went through my never ending fabric stash and found this floral cotton I bought it last summer. I sketched something up then made the pattern. Its a basic darted bodice with a V-neck, empire and shirred/smocked waist for shaping. I added seprate ties to the shoulder so you can wear with or without. Oh yeah no zipper you can just pull it on over your head.
poly/cotton, elastic for shirring/smocking
