This dress is old fashioned, but still classy, in my opinion. It’s based on Simplicity 2848 pattern. The fabric is Checked Wool Flannel and Polyester for lining. The piping is orange Velvet, picking up the thin orange lines on the fabrice.
And oh, I need to introduce my dear friend Ruby, as you can see her in the photo wearing my dress inside out to show you the lining :)
See My Blog CozyCotton for lots of photos and my construction process.
