Patrones No. 269, #36 (Lasserre) pattern.
I altered the dress – narrowed down the bodice in the waist area and added back darts. Also, I cropped the bodice a bit, due to my short torso. I altered the skirt part – the original pattern has 4 waist pleats on front and 4 on the back side. I made one big pleat on each side, I thought it looked better on me that way.
The dress is fully lined.
I used very cheap cotton, it cost me approx. 5 euros!
Fashion fabric: cotton with print
Lining, belt and collar: thin white cotton
