S 3596 is a Simplicity Halloween costume pattern. I made the clown dress this weekend for Kate (came out very cute, but I don't have any photos of it) and noticed that it was really just a very cute A-line shift. So here is a non-costume sleeveless version.
On the topic of dresses, I really need to buy a ruffler foot. I found this dress this morning and to buy it because the collar is gorgeous.
It's by "Max & Cleo" and I can't seem to find a website for them, sadly. The dress is all cotton, elastic waist, faux wrap. There's a tiny hook and eye to keep the faux wrap top from gapping, and a side zip. Too cute.
(ETA the dress is on Nordstrom's site in brown and in yellow)
