Straight from your mother's pattern book, this dress is simple elegance. The scalloped overlay has the appearance of a duster or a sleeveless coat over an a-line dress. It is actually a self-lined panel joined to the dress at the sides and shoulders. There are several ways the dress can be completed including buttons sewn in the curves of the scallops, a chain draped from one side to the other, or no embellishment at all.
