This is Cynthia Rowley (Simplicity) 1939. The dress is completely lined which is a good thing since the fabric I used is a very sheer chiffon with a little sparkle detail. The fit is very cute (hard to tell on the dress form). This project was very time consuming, ten darts along the bottom of the skirt alone. Looking forward to spring so I can sport this maxi dress with some cute high heel sandals and a cardigan.
Sheer chiffon (Joann fabric). Light weight cotton lining, zipper, interfacing, snaps & thread.
