I have gone through some of the Simplicity patterns available to find simple styles and add suggestions for articles to add if needed or to accessorize differently.
This is a simple dress that would need the neckline raised for modest dressing. The blouse is dressy also and can be made in silk or soft fabrics for dressier occasions.
This one is very easy to make with a back zipper and semi-fitted through the bodice. I would lower the hemline for a more flattering look. This one can be accessorized with scarves, jewelry, belts, vests, and jackets.
This one would work with long sleeves in Fall colors. The view D would work as a jumper in heavier fabric with a bright sweater underneath.
This one could be shortened or left long and made in cottons or corduroy for warmth.
For 2 piece dressing:
If you prefer knits, make sure there is no static or clingingness as you want it to ride over gently but not tight. Scarves would go well with this as well as large pieces of jewelry and various belts.
Make sure your neckline doesn't sag so that it will be modest. Wear a higher necked sweater or raise the neckline. It would work nicely as an over blouse with a turtleneck sweater and skirt in heavier fabrics for cold weather.
This is one of my favorites because it is simple and has a flattering line. It is also easy.
This one is perhaps more detailed than the rest. Gathered skirts go with some things while the more fitted at the waist work for over-blouses much better.
This skirt pattern is easy and offers pockets.
This is a lightweight one for using inside to keep the chill off. It is very easy and flattering.
View C has an elegant look to it. Views A and B are a popular style now. They are good if you don't have to deal with wind!
I just think we ought to have a little fun outfit for at-home wear as the lounge clothes tend to express a "not-so-ready-to-do-anything" attitude that rubs off on the wearer.
Dottie Angel has some cute clothes patterns for fun and work. I enjoy thinking about these as they come out. I haven't made any yet, but perhaps may try 8186 with a sweater under, longer skirt, and leggings for warmth.
