I made Simplicity 2444 with some cute Marc Jacobs’ bow print cotton lawn. I wanted to make a cute retro dress, and I think I’ve succeeded. The inside is finished with either french seams or bias binding for a tidy appearance on the inside as well as the outside. More photos and details can be found on my blog DapperDuds
Cotton lawn fabric, lace hem tape, 1/4" single-fold bias binding, invisible zipper and thread (obvs)
Twists on feminine classics, like a bold patterned shift dress and pants with a racing stripe.
