Version:  F modified for the dress

Recommend:  Vogue 8766 is a very nice basic pattern that can be used in a number of variations.  It is definitely a "go to" in my pattern collection. 

It's been a few months since I completed a sewing project.  I decided though that I absolutely needed a new Halloween costume this year.  With the help of Vogue 8766, which I have made several times before, I constructed a simple cotton dress as the base for a Alice in Wonderland character.  The apron was made by the whim; whereas, I snipped and folded until it turned out well enough.  The "costume" is super comfy and truth be told, I will more than likely wear the dress not as a costume.
