Lovebird Summer Dress (Simplicity 4199)

So... yet another 'I bought this fabric forever ago and just finally got around to using it' project.  I made a dress with this pattern (Simplicity 4119 ) years ago and really like it, except the bodice is so skimpy that I always wear it with a blouse on top. So, I thought I'd try making the bodice a little larger for better coverage. But apparently, that was a fail :-/ I still think it's cute, though.

Have to say, quilter's cottons make the best summer dresses! Girlie lovebird design cotton with turquoise taffeta accent and bow.
