Mint and Chocolate dress

Romantic summer dress.
I followed the pattern quite faithfully, with no variations, except adding the ribbon as a decorative detail.
Also added a triangle for modesty (not much) because this is really not a dress for big girls.

Material Notes

Vintage seersucker with white polka dots that came from my grandmother.
Light cotton for lining.
Cut ribbon for decoration.

    For anybody thinking of doing this dress, I have doubled the skirt width

    I love it, the fabric is to die for! I have my eye on this pattern for a while, maybe I will give it a try as well :)

      Thank you.
      It was supposed to be just mint but as I pined it together I realised it was missing something.
      Finding the ribbon was sheer luck.

    I love it! Especially how the modesty triangle matches the hem and arms.

    Dont suppose you would let me borrow it when it gets 100 degrees here?
