Description

This isn’t my usual colour or style or pattern company, but it’s so much fun to try something different for a change! I ended up prickstitching the lining edges the whole way around, and also finishing the hem with some pretty lace tape which added some couture touches.

There’s a great back story to this dress, too, which you can read about on FehrTrade.com!

Hot pink stretch cotton sateen from Mood

    This is really nice! Stretch cotton sateen is one of my favourite fabrics to sew!
