This fit and flare dress is a mashup of two different patterns, a self drafted bow, a necktie scarf and a petticoat.

Bodice: Simplicity #1827 – This is my go-to bodice pattern. I made the neckline about 1.5″ deeper.
Skirt: McCall’s Stitch N Save #3287 – Another one of my go-to skirt patterns, shortened to 19″
Bow: I made this bow in less than 20 minutes. It’s a simple rectangle with iron-on interfacing on both pieces of fabric keep it extra stiff and in shape. I cinched it together with this necktie scarf I made (which was made using the same material) and used it to wrap around my waist.
Petticoat: A self drafted gathered skirt with tulle.
