This is the first pattern I ever made a nice, wearable dress from, Vouge Easy Options 2429. It’s just a great basic pattern with, as one would imagine, many options included. But it’s a great pattern to alter and make your own. I added long halter straps that tie in the back and made my own version of ruching in the front with little folds instead.
The fabric is a great cotton print from my grandma’s fabric stash. Probably from the 60’s.
