The bodice of this dress is Simplicity 2444, with a full circle skirt. I used 3 meters of cotton with a red rose print. This was pretty easy to make, though I had some fit issues with a gaping neckline and gaping at the underarms. I need to figure out how to fix this for next time, and there will be a next time, because the slanted waist darts are great!
I wore this on a picnic at Vanadislunden with my fiance and my dog. I have more photos of the dress and our picnic on my blog. :)
