Made using Vogue 1104, out of thin silk charmeuse. The edges of the ruffles and the sash are finished with a rolled hem on my overlocker, using two shades of red thread I already had. The design has threaded sash loops, and a really cute looped button closure at the front; and I added inseam pockets in the side seams.
This is a new look for me, but I love the romantic femininity of this, plus it will be cool to wear on hot summery days.
