The first dress I have ever made; the second garment I’ve ever done.
McCall’s (Butterick) B5317 “very easy” patterns, which ended up being one of the hardest things I have done in my life so far. Lined bodice, double pleated skirt, Invisible pockets, side zipper and I added the sash because alterations were outside of my skill level and it really worked out! McCall is crazy.
Linen for the skirt was PERFECT fabric for beautiful hanging pleats. _
