I use JJ’s bodice sloper/block for the upper part of the dress. The lower parts are just 2 rectangles the width of the fabric, The front rectangle is cut in half for the opening. I was experimenting with unfinished edges (or maybe I’m just lazy), so I didn’t use any facings, except for self-facings for the front opening. To prevent further fraying, the raw edges are double stitched about 1 cm from the edges. The buttons are all in different shapes.
The hat pattern is from a Japanese pattern book, but I made the brim slightly wider.
