plaid built by me dress

Here is Built By Wendy 3835.
I left off the ties at the sleeves. They were not for me. Of course I had to go through the trouble of doing one even though in the back of my mind I knew I wasn't going to like them. Instead I made seam binding from them. Much better.
I also didn't want it too mini so the hem at the bottom is narrow. There are two shaping darts in back and a 20" lapped zipper on the back. The fit is pretty good.

I am very happy with my fabric choice. It's from Cia's Palette bought a while back with a Fall dress in mind.

Very cute! I wore my version of this top on Friday, which prompted me to pull out the pattern to make more. It's such a great pattern.
