A Sewaholic ‘Lonsdale’ dress, with quite a lot taken off the hem, and with a lapped zipper.
This was actually a muslin I made for another version of the Lonsdale dress that I wanted to wear to a friend’s wedding. I found it in stuffed in a drawer before I went to Sri Lanka on holiday, stuck a zip in and hemmed it, and there you go! Easy holiday sundress!
Very light and thin cotton in a pink and white paisley pattern. It’s super drapey and feels very soft. I bought it off a remnants roll for £1 a metre, and that’s about all I know about it! Maybe it’s a lawn? Not sure.
