Handkerchief hem dress

I adore this fabric. I bought it off Etsy, from a seller who doesn’t seem to exist anymore 😦  The pattern is Simplicity 2716, and I particularly like the ties that join the back and front bodices. The model was a bit grouchy, so I couldn’t get good photos of the hem shape, but it is very pretty. I didn’t add the underskirt because I think it would have made the top a bit hot for summer. I am thinking this one will be able to be worn in winter with pants and a shirt underneath. If I make the top version again I will probably raise the waistline, my hunch is it will make the proportions even nicer.
