This apparently simple dress drove me crazy! The skirt and pockets are from a 1940s pattern, and I pattern made the top part to my measurements on a dress making dummy. At least i have the pattern now, so wont need to invent the wheel eavh time. I think it would be a better fir with a bit of stretch in the fabric though.
