After countless muslins/toiles I finally got the fit right on this dress.
To read more about the project and process visit my blog!
Somehow these days I seem to make floral dresses exclusively but thats OK with me :)
This pattern was altered significantly from the original and I am looking forward to sewing something different now.
The blue floral fabric was around $5 a meter at a spotlight
The fabric I used for the collar is a cotton drill I got it on sale but its usually $11.95 for a meter.
The bodice lining is a poly/cotton lawn
Navy and black polyester gutterman thread (I always use polyester gutterman!)
1 black invisible 50cm zip.
I also used a little iron-on interfacing but I may not have needed too. It did add a lot of bulk. Perhaps the thing to do is to still add the interfacing but use a lighter fabric for the under collar.
Add a flash of color to your leggings for spring!
