Simplicity 8214

I put this on the sewing fast track because I saw it on Mimi G's blog and she looked great in it. I do like the pattern, but it needs some modifications for me.

 Notice that the bust darts are way too high and the sleeves too tight.

Normally, I don't like to sew solid fabrics, and I think that is a factor in me not really loving this dress.

I do love the attached tie and the button front (the buttons are dark green leaves to match the embroidery). It's finally spring here and we are at the Conservatory in St.Paul, so beautiful, fresh and warm.
