This has become a go-to jacket pattern for me. This is one of my latest projects, Simplicity 2446.
Pattern Review has 121 reviews of the dress. It was voted one of the favorites of 2011. As you look at the various renderings of the dress you can how many women also loved it. It also converts well between casual and professional. I've paired it with a weather and low strappy sandal for a casual dress down Friday. I've also paired it with a business jacket and a simple pump for a more professional office look.
