Simplicity 3588, view B, the size is a blend of 3 and 5, I tried for torso length, skirt length and sleeve of 5 and the width of 3. Possibly the sleeves are extra big because of this, but the fit ended up being great despite the Frankenstein meddling.
The zipper was a short 7” one because it matched perfectly and the longer ones did not even come close. I have done this many times but she’s gotten tall enough that this almost didn’t work and it’s a bit of a shimmy to get her into the dress.
Also this was my first time using piping and I made the piping myself to get the colour I wanted. I see more piping in my future, it’s easy enough to do and I think makes a great accent.
