This is dress 121 from BWOF january 2008.
it includes welt pockets and a shawl collar and actually closes with the zipper. I replaced the suggested tie string on the inside by a snap-on fastener, and also added one above the zipper to avoid gaping at the bust.
I omitted the belt and belt loop since I prefer to accessorize it with my own belt.
It has short sleeves so I wear it with long-sleeve top underneath. I really love this dress, it feels like a comfy sweater…
I used a stretchy poly blend striped fabric. Not sure of the exact content.
