One pattern three new dresses: Dress one

I love this pattern. I have made it several times and of course it is faster each time I make it. Nice upper bodice shaping with an easy empire type seam that turns into a bust dart, but not too fitted under the bust. The A line skirt is also very comfortable and I think this pattern shows that you can have sheath-like style with an A line shape. The first of my three dresses is in a slightly stretchy fairly substantial cotton sateen from Fabricmart and I like the Island colours, very summery to me. It came through lunch today wrinkle-free and that is a plus.
