I had some fabric left over from my Lisette traveler dress (which I've worn several times now -- I can't say that about too many of the things I've made for myself!) so I made Simplicity 2211 view A. I do love pleats but I'm thinking that I should have stuck to the un-pleated view B version -- the fabric is a little too casual and the pleats don't iron very crisply. I still need to tack down the tabs but I think I will forgo the buttons. I used Sew? I Knit's tutorial to insert an invisible zipper. It was super easy and looks way more professional than a regular zipper. I think the end result makes it worth the extra cost (in clothes I make for myself anyway, maybe not for the kids!).
