The Isla is a wrap dress with no peek-a-boo bra issues because it crosses over in the back. I love it! The pattern is so simple to put together; there aren’t any really tricky bits. If you can sew a dart, you can make this dress.

The Ultimate Shift Dress is simple and easy to sew. My fabric choice seemingly featured at least one private body part, but I’m not complaining about it. I think it comes close to reaching my goal of finding the perfect pattern to create a vintage style-shift wardrobe.
