For the dress I cut a straight 38. It fit almost perfectly out the packet (love it when this happens). I just made a teeny adjustment to the waist position and to the back skirt pieces.
I made the neckline a v-neck like Anna’s latest version as I think that is a touch more flattering on me. For crazy reasons I put in a handpicked lapped zipper. The hem is finished with bias tape turned inside. Plus I added a waistband facing in the same chambray.

This is Robert Kaufman’s Interweave Chambray and its definitely bright. It has a really good pink undertone that makes it pop.
Crazily I had the perfect size coordinating purple metal zipper in my stash. Throw in hot pink bias tape everywhere and an old bobbin of “Petunia” sylko thread for my top stitching and my colour scheme was set (remind anyone of My Little Pony?).
