This was my very first project so it was a bit of a steep learning curve, but I love the results.
It’s made in a thick navy cotton to hold the pleats and the seams are finished with bias binding. I didn’t bother putting the pockets in as previous reviewers had complained about added bulk. I also made a few tweaks to the pattern for the back of the bodice.
