I needed a failsafe pattern to do this gorgeous lawn fabric justice. I have recently tweaked the fit of the Elisalex bodice incorporating an FBA recently so I now have a perfect go-to bodice. This is the first time I have created a version with sleeves though. I love how the length of the sleeves combined with a gathered skirt make for a lovely retro style.
