French chic

I've never been to Europe, but this dress is my imagination (mostly coming from movies) of what French girl would be wearing..nautical stripes, black, and sitting at cafe with espresso and a cigarette.

I wanted to customize my favorite cut out dress design into something that's wearable for fall.
So for this one,
1) added elbow length sleeves
2) changed the top fabric from non-stretch cotton to jersey. I thought about adding fitted narrow sleeves with just regular cotton, but I figured it would not work.
3) Kept the square shape neckline, but omitted bust darts, because you don't need darts for stretchy fabric!
4) Used the interface for back, so I can sew the button hole easily.
