It could be made up with any small print cotton or cotton blend fabric. The fabric you choose can determine the type of dress this will be. It could be a elegant gown, to a casual dress. This pattern has a full skirt gathered at the waist with short sleeves.

If you use some silky fabric with a sheer overlay, than you could make this dress into a gorgeous ball gown of the 1950s style. It would just be a matter of using the appropriate fabric. This little pattern could be adjusted to make up many different items with just a few minor changes.
