Another Jess-dress: the cecile dress from Dear Creatures.
I saw Peneloping making one in brown/red, and I made the blue one. I only switched the stripes, I placed two on my waist, and only one on the sleeves.
I don’t know if I like the fabric, it was a cheap polyester one, which cannot be ironed. (It doesn’t wrinkle easily thought)
I used the bodice from the Belladone (but changed to french darts), the sleeves from Peony (but shortened them), and drafted the skirt myself.
