I drafted the pattern for the princess seams myself and I have used it before (as seen in my other project, satin peplum blouse, the skirt on the dress is the peplum pattern but 18 inches long instead of 5 or 6) but I wanted to make a dress with this great eyelet fabric that I have had sitting around forever. I decided to put a black jersey underlay (lining) to give me the option to wear this dress everywhere (not just as a beach cover up). I love this dress and the industrial zipper on the back is just a little touch that I tend to put on all of my designs.
The fitted top and flared skirt go great together for this 50’s style dress that is great for many styles and body shapes.
