Practical suggestions -
a. Ignore it when they say add interlining to the collar and pockets, because it makes them stand to attention, causing the stiff look of the whole thing.
b. Make sure you’ve got a tough buttonholer, since this is only 1 layer of cotton and even my Pfaff struggled to punch through the layers of seams in certain places!
c. Add cloth to the back of the collar, otherwise it’ll stick into the nape of your neck and annoy you :)
Having said that, it’s a pretty colour, full circle skirt, deep pockets and mostly goes in where I do. As a big girl, it is so hard to find clothing which doesn’t incorporate stretch pants and a baggy top! I like feeling girlie, and this dress certainly does that for me!
Cotton with green plastic buttons. Georgette or crepe might work too, but be aware of all the pleats at the back – they make it drag, so the cloth needs to be tough.
