I made this to go to a friend’s 18th. I’m really pleased with it, as I was expecting my sewing to produce a very dodgy looking garment! I don’t like the bow on the front – I think it needs to be smaller, so I’ll get around to altering that later. It definitely needs something to cover the gathering stitches in the middle. The lining is only tacked on as well. I think the pattern I used is very similar to the Caty, maybe? I’m making another one with straps in a white and blue floral! Good times to be had :)
Blue polyester (I’m not a polyester fan AT ALL, but this particular fabric had a very nice feel and didn’t fray much); blue cotton for the lining; invisible zipper; iron-on interfacing
