I actually finished this dress a few weeks ago, but only got round to taking photos now..and consequently have already worn it several times. It is so comfy, with a simple A-line shape and lined with soft white cotton. There is a little button (like an orange!) at the back.
I drafted the pattern myself, which wasn’t hard: basically just extending my bodice block. The shape and length was very much inspired by the 60s mod look, and I am happy :)
blue gingham cotton, lightweight white cotton, orange button
