My search for a simple, adaptable, yoke dress pattern for Aud eventually found its answer in a nightgown pattern, Simplicity 8488. (This sleeve, btw, is not the one in the pattern.) The fabric is a lightweight corduroy I found at JoAnn's. In the winter, we layered it with a brown, long sleeved tee, tights and boots. For spring, this dress and shiny, fuschia Saltwaters make for a easy, cool outfit for church or play.
I made this version last fall from an Amy Butler Lotus fabric and the skirt from a Denyse Schmidt County Fair dot, which, serendipitously, matched perfectly, and were both in my stash. Love when that happens.
