Red & white polka-dot chiffon, in Alexander. I added a bit of length to the bodice and peplum, added a front and back placket, for decency’s sake ;), and tossed the shank buttons for classy abalone. Interlined with China silk. Although I made a muslin, I changed the length only in my garment fabric, which required some extra fitting between the bust and waist.
Oh, and I love love love my new rolled hem plate for the serger!
