Summer Dress - Modified Simplicity 2587

I made this dress last year (click here) but it was a size too big. I liked the style though so I decided to make it again except this time I redrafted the back to a low V, used an invisible zip instead of a side-lapped zip and added hidden pockets. I also fully lined it which I do for every dress because I like the weight better that way. Anyway, it's a simple, slightly poofy summer dress that's perfect for the pool. The added bonus is that I used a tablecloth from my childhood for the outside and an old sheet for the lining. I figured why not upcycle some old stuff sitting in my stash?
