For this pattern I elimanated the ruffles on the neck-tie. I thought it was too much. I just folded the strap in half and cut it in the middle to make a tie. I also added in the bust, sew in inserts to the inside of the facing of the dress. I felt it needed something to make the top more sturdy. I would also suggest using a piece of interfacing in the bust if you don’t want the inserts.
I used a navy and check eyelet cotton fabric. I love the way this dress has turned out. It has a little bit of the 40’s flair to it. Very fun and easy to make!
