I am very much enjoying putting together these 1940 day dresses.  So, I thought I would give Simplicity 3162 a go.

I thought the soft pleats on the sleeves were lovely.  It was a quick dress to put together if you put your mind to it.  The directions did have me scratching my head but once I just focused on the pictures, I was able to figure things out.

You can see I did change up the neckline from the picture on the pattern.  The details and lots of pictures of the original neckline and the changes made to the pattern can be found on my blog.
