Did you get an email yesterday with new Simplicity patterns for spring? I loved S2981, this wrap dress, so much, I ran out and got it about two hours after reading that email.
It is difficult to tell from the photos, but the dress has several godets to make the skirt fuller. It also takes a lot of material - 7-3/8 to 7-5/8 45", depending on size, for the white wrap dress. Fabric recommended is laundered cottons, lightweight pique or poplin, chalis, crepe back stain, crepe de chine, etc.
I have some nice teal rayon that might make work. I think I'd try first the b&w on the left side of the photo. The only thing I didn't like was the darn tab thing on the sleeve - I've never liked those things!!!!!
Now the suit in the other pattern, I'm not sure about. I do like the jacket, but the skirt just looks like it would gap or be difficult to fit. The photo even looks like there is a problem in the front seam. I didn't get this one, as the larger photo in the pattern catalog makes it look even more of a problem. Its charms may grow on me.
