Worth it?

Wouldn't this make a cute sundress?

I just finished by black vest, shown here with one of the blouses that inspired me to make it. The pattern is McCall's 2260. It's labelled "one hour" but I don't know who can sew that fast! I told Anna it would probably take 2 hours, if you worked continuously and made no mistakes. Note that the pattern only contains one size, so make sure you purchase the size you want! I was afraid I bought too small but it fits me as if someone designed it for me.

It is a very easy pattern, unlined, and I want one in every color.

I don't know why there are streaks in the picture; it's not the vest. The buttons have chevrons, which was just an added bit of flair; I sewed them on so all the V's are pointing down.
