Mystery Bundle, I knew just who it was going to. She wanted a shirtdress, and we searched through my pattern collection and found Simplicity 2996. We liked the princess lines, 3/4 sleeves with the petal cuff, and the inseam pockets. It had the added bonus of being one of the multi-cup size pattern so that I didn't have to do a full bust adjustment. Yay! Overall the pattern is great, and I would highly recommend it.
Here is a close-up of the petal cuff sleeves:
And the in-seam pockets:

She only wore this a few times in the semester, because she said that it was so recognizable, she didn't feel like she could wear it more than once every couple of weeks. I think she had a lot of fun with it, and so did her friends teasing her about it. One said that he would like to take a painting class with her. Then she also got the old, "what did you say? I can't hear you- your dress is too loud!".
