Gorgeous gingham Country and Western inspired dress, with a jade green bias lined hem and bias country and western detailing on the yoke. Made from Vogue vintage pattern 9157. If anyone is looking for a simple yet effective pattern this is a great one. I added my own bias tape detail and folded a 1cm piece of bias in half to give the effect of piping. I also ran out of material so used some calico in the frill at the bottom but think that adds to the whole country and western feel.
Gingham cotton, green bias
