just finished: Simplicity 0598/2403 - Project Runway Dress

Latest project: tunic in blue and white based on the dress in Simplicity 2403.

I cut the skirt pattern at the hip.

Make sure you use the next size up on the waistband. I think the pattern is mis-marked. I had to cut out new pieces.

The pattern was relatively easy to follow. I have no complaints, though overall it took a long time. I'm pretty sure I'll be making a sleeveless version for summer, and I think it could be cute in a corduroy or wool flannel for winter. The wooden buttons I got at a yard sale. They're from the 1950's, from a department store in NYC.
