One Great Dress and Three Different Looks

Dress Front

I decided to make a fun dress for the summer that would be versatile as well as show a little personality.  Alone, it’s great for any daytime summer activity. (For interest I added a folded cascading front center panel and sleeves.)  Then, when I added the velveteen jacket and scarf, it becomes a little more dressy for evening, and can easily be worn year round.  Plus, for a third look, the dress and scarf, (which can also be worn as a belt), creates an outfit that would look perfect at the office.  Overall, I think i’ll get lots of wear from all three pieces.  I used Simplicity patterns #2938 & 3634.  The scarf was my own pattern.

    Very clever, very nice looking and wearable. Your design is beautiful and the dress looks to be well made. I like the jacket and scarf which both add to the season-spanning usefulness, as well as diversity in wearing the outfit to different types of events. Thanks for posting it! I especially applaud the contrast/similarity of the diagonal tucks at the neckline with the horizontal ones down the dress front.
