A classic shift dress is a staple in any wardrobe, and Simplicity’s 3744 princess-seamed version will work for all sorts of figures. It’s a basic design with smart variations, including short and long sleeves, in-seam pockets or pocket flaps, an optional half-belt in back, and different neckline styles. In a playful black-and-white color scheme, the dress is fresh and slightly retro. Opt for a crisp linen or a dressy silk dupioni and you’ve got a day or evening dress. You can get even more mileage by adjusting the length to make a sleek-lined tunic.
