Santa Ana, Calif...
The cotton ended up being pretty heavy, I lined the skirt also with cotton and it is a little too bulky. The tie straps are a little complicated to sew, I’m not sure if I was totally in love with the way the bodice came out, but as a whole the garment itself looks pretty good.
I guess I’m just my own harshest critic
I used quilters cotton for the base of the dress
