Used two contrasting fabrics I’ve had in my stash. I used New Look pattern 6208. I left off the bow detail on the front waist band and the back straps. The dress has contrasting trim on the front bodice, waist band, back straps, neck & sleeves. It’s hard to see the contrast on some areas in the pictures. I wish the dress had pockets. If I were to make it again I would add pockets.
Contrast fabric linen, main body of dress is a heavier cotton.
Dress up outerwear with deep shawl collars and sew up a lovely fitted dress with a flounced hemline.
