This is pattern 04-2008-118 from BWOF.
It as a sleeveless dress with contrasting collar, armband and waistband facings. It includes a front exposed zipper, welt-type pockets with a hip-yoke piece and a vertical “flap”. 2 pleats on the skirt align with the pocket flaps.
This is definitely the most contructed and detailed garment I have made so far and I am very happy with the way it turned out.
I did a muslin first, which was very helpful technically, because it helped me practice the various techniques this dress required.
