I’ve had this pattern in the queue for over a year! Love the neckline and the pencil silhouette with the gathers, it’s the broad-shouldered girl’s best friend. Which is why I decided it would make a spectacular birthday dress!

The fabric is a swimsuit lycra, and it’s lined with swimsuit lining so technically this is the perfect pool party dress…I can just jump right in, cocktail in hand!

The pattern itself was mind-boggling at first: 60 pages, 15 pattern pieces and picture-less instructions = major intimidation factor!
