I bought another piece of fabric along with the one I wanted advice on last week. It is a nice fabric in fall colors, but I wanted to make a summer dress that could make the transition to fall. The weather is still nice here and I hope to fit in more beach days, but soon it will be getting cold.
I used Simplicity 7689, with the middle view. It is two pieces and two facings. Including cutting time, it maybe took a hour to make. Jiffy, like it says!
The fabric is peacock feathers, but in shades of off-white, tan, burgundy, green and blue. I really like it.
It was fun and easy to make; I am happy with it. I can add tights and a cardigan and wear it into fall as well.
