Description

Found this lovely yellow fabric along with this stretch mesh both measure only a 1 yd from the remnants box in the fabric store. The yellow is so bright that I immediately think of sunshine. I create a simple design, experimenting with split sleeve. The skirt is gathered to its fullness and the top has long bell sleeve with cuff bands and an opening in the joining. A invisible zip on the left side. I use yellow interlock underneath the mesh for lining.

I like the sleeves as it give the dress a nice touch.
