I absolutely am obsessed with this dress. I haven’t made many dresses that I really love to wear and/or can wear often, so I am pretty sure this will be a summer staple.
I used the Stylish Dress Book volume 3 again because it is the only pattern book I brought with me to NC. This is pattern G seriously modified. I considered adding pockets but the fabric is so thin I think it would have taken away from the design. Next time I use this pattern I definitely will!
I really loved this project because I got to work with a plaid and match up lines in the waist, sides, bodice and hem. I especially love how perfectly the front bodice and its facing matches!
I kind of wish I had taken the time to do a blind hem, but other than that I am very happy, and cant wait to pair it with other belts and accessories!
