Beautiful dress. I have made this one but didn’t occur to me to use fine fabric! Thank you for the inspiration.

Thank you Karen. I do think you would be pleasantly surprised how simple this is. You don’t even have to sew buttonholes if you don’t want to! There are two fronts, two backs seamed down the middle…
