I knew the stripe print would lend itself perfectly to this V-neck pattern (the same pattern I based my Christmas dress on). I interlined the bodice, as the cheap cotton fabric is lightweight to the point of being almost see-through. The skirt is made using a different pattern, it's in gores forming a half-circle skirt. I actually finished this a couple of weeks ago and I've worn it several times already. I LOVE this dress - it's really easy to wear, and very comfortable.
