Simplicity 3238 was originally intended to be made as a halter weskit-style blouse and separate skirt, but for some reason it seemed like a good idea to make a dress out of it (rather than just use a halter dress pattern). A halter dress pattern would have made a lot more sense. The stripe-matching went better than expected.
Bound buttonholes for the halter top fastening. And me in the dress, sans belt. Still trying to decide if using a matching dark pink bias hem trim would be too much.
