Dress season is coming. Black and ivory maxi dress!
I had several yards of this fun ivory and black triangle print knit and I hadn't known what to do with it, but I pulled out Simplicity 1355 (same easy, loose summery pattern I used for this lovely maxi dress I made last September and this romper (one of the other views)). As I did for the maxi I made with it last summer, I lined it (the knit is a little sheer) and so had to tweak the construction and ignore a lot of the instructions, but it worked well and gave me a lined dress that's a comfortable, carefree one-piece outfit.
The back is cute, too.
It's easy to wear and dress up or down, or for spring vs. summer weather!
It's been so nice recently, the edgy jacket over it was only kind of necessary!
