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.
