This dress from the cover of Burda 11/2012 looked like it would fit the bill. I liked the ruffles and the dropped waist and its pull on comfy easyness.

- I didn't twist the shoulders as my fabric didn't have 2 good sides.
- I took the sides in at the waist. The pattern flares here and I tried it on before I added the elastic and it just gave me an extra kind of roll around the middle that I just didn't need.
- I accidentally cut the top without a seam allowance at the bottom so its a bit shorter than it was meant to be. I also forgot to prewash my fabric so i'm hoping it won't shrink too much. Fingers crossed.
Happily its just started to rain. All that heat was getting a bit too intense for me. Still a pom at heart.
