I cut this dress out months ago, which is always my least favorite part of the sewing process, but even after that, it sat around.  I'll blame the holidays - but I don't know what it was!  I have to travel for work at the end of the month, so that gave me motivation to finish this!  I love it love it love it!

It fits great, and it's a style that I really couldn't wear before losing weight.  I did the sleeveless version, not because I want to show off my flappy arms, but because I didn't have enough fabric for sleeves, and I figured I'd wear a cardigan over it anyway!  I'll definitely be making this dress again.  It's Simplicity 2403 - one of their Project Runway patterns, which means there are a lot of variations on a single theme.  There's a pretty cute double breasted version which I may have to do!  I also like the idea of doing the skirt in a different fabric than the bodice so give a separates look, but in one piece.
