Today I finished this dress and wore it right away.
I love the shape and colour of it.
I used the same pattern as many other people, the cap sleeve dress pattern.
It’s fully lined. I made a muslin for the bodice because I had read that the neckline was gaping for some people. It would have worked without adjustments, but I slightly changed the darts for an even better fit.
