Not happy with Simplicity 4180

I did as I said I would and replaced the faux vest in the pattern with a sewn in ‘V’ but whilst this bit worked fine I am not happy with the fit overall, I think the cotton fabric I used is too stiff.

So item scrapped and I cheered myself up with buying a shirt dress from Tesco which is shown (below) in the online Tesco magazine

Needless to say (as a 48 year old size 18) I will be wearing it with jeans or leggings but it still looks good (even on me!)  When it is worn out I will take it apart to get a pattern from it as the style is very flattering.
