MYSTYLE: Simplicity 8216

My Wardrobe is in desparate need of updating.  I need lovely, simple chick dresses for this hot Florida weather.  When I first go this pattern my thought was to make the top, because of course I could never have enough tops.   But after looking at the pattern for awhile, then cutting it out, I knew exactly what fabric I would pair with it andthat it would be my first spring dress.  



The pattern comes together very easy, and the fabric was a nice rayon challis from Fabricmart.com.




I paired it with a faux leather Obi Belt I made some time ago.   Here is the styled look:





The only modification I made was to lengthen the pattern two inches, and omit the elastic casting at the waist.  

Happy Sewing!
