Here is the pattern, which I picked up on a whim at a Jo-Ann pattern sale sometime in the spring. I liked the big scalloped skirt, which is not a feature any of my other patterns have. I doubted that the bustier style bodice would be flattering, so I opted for the fold down neckline.
Cost: I had a zipper and the fabric was 50% off, so it was about 12$.
Time: Maybe 3 hours, as the lining eliminated the need to hem!
Anyways, I strongly recommend doing the same thing if you make this pattern. It made it really easy!
