I made this very FAST & EASY dress about a month ago. I did view B in a size 10 but not the belt, as I thought it would be too “matching”. Instead used a nude leather belt with tassels (that don’t show in the picture very well). Also I lined the dress with white synthetic lining (hmm…. maybe not the best choice for a summer dress).
About the fabric, I’m not quite sure how to call it. It is a broderie anglaise or an eyelet or both. I think I’ll let you decide on it.
Anyway, I enjoyed making it and because it feels so weightless and comfortable I love wearing it.
