Scallop cutout dress with pockets from the book Twinkle Sews by Wenlan Chia. This design is originally from the spring 2008 Twinkle by Wenlan collection.
I made a few alterations: lengthened hem 2 inches and left it loose, eliminated the elastic in the front waist, added 1 inch to the bodice length for my full bust.
I made a size 4.
I’d recommend this dress for intermediate to advanced sewists.
