    great job. reminds me of the ‘Dawn Doll’ dress from the 70’s called either ‘dinner date’ or ’dinner at eight.

    Asolutely adorable dress! How was it to work with that fabric?

      Thank you very much! The fabric was good to work with after a few practice runs. It responded well to the iron, which I used to press the seam before every run of stitches, and that helped a lot. The dotted pattern made it much easier to cut straight lines because I could just follow the dots. Will definitely use it again!

    Really cute – I love the bias finish on the dress and lining hems.
