This is the “Bette” dress (again!) which was a free downloadable pattern from Sew Mag. It is really easy and satisfying to put together and I tried REALLY hard to be neat inside and out…..something I am not really so very good at, probably far too impatient. For a change, I sewed in an underskirt for added “pouffiness” but I didn’t manage it very well and have since thought of a better way of doing it. Ho hum! To compliment the lining I made a little cummerbund (sp?) and sewed on some pretty vintage buttons which I had triumphantly bought last weekend at a vide grenier.
