Melissa, who sent this, swears I've shown it before, but I can't find it (I REALLY need to add those pattern number tags).
This is a Butterick reissue, so you can buy it in your size, instead of altering the vintage version. (If you wait for the big-box fabric store sales, you can probably get it for $2. In fact, all Butterick patterns are on sale at Hancock Fabrics this week for $1.99.)
I think this would be an excellent pattern to help you use up your stash of smaller pieces — if you make the two-tone version, the contrast part is less than 2 yds, and the main body is about three. Since most of my patterns fall about laughing if I try to make them up with less than four or five yards of a single fabric, I'm seriously considering this one. I have to start using up those smaller bits … of course, what I saved in using up fabric I would spend in trying to find interesting bias binding! I have two complementary pieces of cherry-print quilting fabric that would be adorable in this dress, if I have enough. Or maybe that bright pink seersucker I keep pulling out and putting away again …
Here's the line drawing, and my question: Where would you put the pockets? Obviously, it needs pockets, but where? Patch ones are such a pain. I think I would do two small in-seam pockets hanging from the wrap waist seam — just big enough for a lipstick, a driver's license, and a couple folded bills.
