My Shari made for the sew-along (and my birthday). I really love the flow of this dress, it’s really fun in such a lightweight, slinky fabric. I made some modifications: I moved the zipper to the side and didn’t line the dress. I also added elastic thread to the back of the yoke (because it ended up being too big), and added a line of elastic thread at the shoulder seams, since it tended to crease near the neckline, and this way the creases look intentional One suggestion: Make sure your yoke fits snuggly!
Some sort of vintage flowered rayon (yard sale for 50 cents). Zipper from a thrift store purse (25 cents). orange-dot cotton yoke fabric and light interfacing from my stash.
