This is the Afternoon Tea Top extended into a dress.
The fabric was so see-through I had to add an extra slip/lining layer. And then my girlfriend told me: Ohh, I’m always careful with gathers around the bust as it makes us small chested women look flat! (Although I’m pretty sure we always look flat) I hand stitched in some moulded bra padding to try to add some support as well as adding the straps (because I couldnt hold the dress up myself!). Works pretty well. I moved the zipper to the side to accomodate those fun squiggles on the fabric. The dress is a suck-in-and-hold exercise to get the zip up (she’s a wee bit tight).
Very light cotton with a very light linen slip.
