This week's Fashion Plate is the Rock and Bowl dress from Modcloth. Simplicity 2444 is such a great base pattern. You can give it a poofy skirt like this one or slim that skirt down using a different skirt pattern in the Project Runway collection. You really have endless variations of styling and creating with this pattern. Just change one thing about the bodice and switch up the fabric and you can have a holiday dress or an everyday work dress or any shade in between. The fabric for this look is Asbury Bowling Pins in Lime. There are several other colors if the lime happens to sell out (only 17 yards left). I find that ModCloth uses a lot of lapped zippers in the dresses. I think that's pretty cool! I have a love/hate relationship with lapped zippers right now. I need more practice.
