This is the Jenny dress from Burdastyle in 36, its such a fun pattern to make!
Its from some stretch cotton from Ebay and although its a bit Carmen Miranda i think it might be ok for a hot sunny day (it was about minus 1 degree in the photo!)
The only alterations i made was to raise the hem (actually by accident it went too short but ok), and as i think this pattern is for someone with much bigger bust i had to put a little ribbon straps across the back to keep it on my shoulders! I also out a few stitches in the front just to keep the bust together and stop it from gaping, these seemed to fix the problem
I would recommend this pattern
