This dress was based on the Burda Cargo Pocket dress.

I made mine without the pockets.

I added faux leather piping to the front shoulders for some contrast and shortened the sleeves by 6.5 inches.

Due to the texture of the shell fabric, I chose to fully line the dress with light weight cotton rather than use the facing in the pattern.

To finish the sleeve edge, I hemmed using double fold bias binding which I cut from the shell fabric, and stitched in the ditch. I used black lace hem tape at the hemline and blind stitched by hand, the scallops are very pretty.
