This is my most recent version of one of my favorite patterns, Mccalls 4826. I finally finished it exactly how I wanted it, being able to attach the top of the halter to the midriff and lining in one seam. I sandwiched the halter top in between the two midriff pieces, and stitched only to the side seams on both sides. Then, from side seams to zipper, I sewed the lining and the dress separately, allowing me to turn it under and attach the lining to the zipper tape from the inside. I am very pleased with how this came out.
Medium weight cotton blend with a slight stretch, gauzy cotton lining.
