I love this dress! The fabric is stretch cotton sateen, purchased from Clegs in Melbourne. I extended the sleeve by about 1 1/2 inches to create a cap sleeve. I didn’t line the dress as it would make it too hot. And I finished the sleeves and neckline with bias binding. I shortened the hem by about an inch. And of course, my signature zip on the back; I’m working through a serious stack of them!
