Hence the simple dress.
I think the material was too light though. Needed to be a bit heavier to make the right shape. I like the sleeve length and the band on the sleeve but the waist is a little bunchy for my liking. Haven't done a lot of plaid/tartan/stripes so I'm not sure I did it the best possible way.
A nice light casual dress though, very comfy. May well whip it out for an 80's party.
Materials: Blue and red plaid blanket from Emerald Lifeline (approx $4), sewing pattern from (20c),
