This dress was made for my uni graduation. I needed a dress with buttons on the front to hold the front of the hood in place, and I chose white because it will match my graduation colours. I used simplicity pattern 1880 http://www.simplicity.com/p-7453-misses-dresses-project-runway-collection.aspx
This is the first dress I have sewn for myself and I’m very happy with it. I’m planning on making more for work.
White cotton polypop, unfortunately a little too see through but I’ll wear something underneath that will hopefully lessen the problem.
