Simplicity 3238

Simplicity 3238 was originally intended to be made as a halter weskit-style blouse and separate skirt, but for some reason it seemed like a good idea to make a dress out of it (rather than just use a halter dress pattern). A halter dress pattern would have made a lot more sense. The stripe-matching went better than expected.
I can’t decide whether I want to tack on the belt or find some sort of a buckle to use with it.

Oh, that is extremely cute. Love the colors and your pattern matching looks perfect :D It’s so satisfying when that all goes to plan.

Cute! So summery! If you do a belt buckle, I would suggest a narrow vertical rectangular one. Buckle or no buckle, it’s still fab!
