In the Queue Wednesday

This is the second of the two new dresses that I bought recently, and which I would like to copy in my own sewing:
I was initially attracted to the fabric - I would never have picked this style out for myself. But, now that I've worn it, I think it is relatively flattering to my body type & size.

The fabric is medium weight and has a bit of stretch to it too.

The only thing I'd definitely drop is the side zipper in the skirt section of this dress. It seems to be pointless as it doesn't come up as high as the bottom of the neck opening, and thus even when both are fully open, there is a constriction in the middle of the dress that I have to squeeze through... Am I missing something?

So, like the other RTW dress that I want to copy, this is also quite low on my list - and sadly even those things on the top of my list are languishing these days due to lack of sewing time... :(

But, don't worry, I'll get to it someday - it's in the queue...
